Need advise on cutting cable cost.

My last bill from Att was $215...sick of paying that much to watch only a few shows. I dont want to cut the cord from cable entirely. I would like to keep basic cable and internet, but still be able to watch the shows I like on HBO and showtime. I`m already a netflix subscriber, any other suggestions ? Can you buy season passes for most of the shows on HBO and Showtime?



Thanks!

Sounds like they're just including a few sources with their version of XBMC. But you should be able to do the same exact thing yourself very easily.

I've never been a big fan of the pre-configured versions of XBMC. Always been trouble. There's an XBMC Hub Wizard from xbmchub.com, that has a setup like this. I used it once to setup a friends system, and it sucked balls.

I've always stuck with the official XBMC versions. I've used some Nightly versions in the past. But these days I just stick with latest stable version.

FYI... there's a nifty new feature called the XBMC App Store. This let's you install plugins via repositories, done through a slick looking GUI. It's all automated. For example you basically see the 1Channel logo and description, and say Install, and it will install the repo so that you'll receive future updates when available.

When I was having all the problems with mine, I had a bunch of crap on it from xbmchub wizard. It looks really nice on the surface, because it has "apps" with a GUI that allow you to change your buffer limit, clear your cache, and do all kind of other "fixes" via their wizard app. I almost gave up on XBMC when I was running that piece of shit. That was when I was crashing like twice during the course of a movie.

Yeah. XBMC Hub Wizard is a piece of shit. I've never been so frustrated.. I'm surprised that it's so bad, considering the talent of some of their developers.

Hah! That's timely. I've been screwing around trying to get the spotimc repository added to my box all morning. I just tossed this app in, and now I've nabbed spotimc in about 3 minutes. Sweet.

yeah, that was the exact video I used. My library is full but the only way it will update is if I physically go to 1channel/subscriptions and click Update Subscriptions. It never does it on its own. Really annoying too because it takes 4 minutes for it to update subscriptions and it also produces an error at the 1 minute mark that I have to wait for to accept before it will move on.

this is one of the reasons I wanted to know if I could just install the base version from the website because I think subscriptions might be broken on this build.

I just don't know if that will break some of my files for HW playback

Mashup is a good one too. It does pretty much everything that 1Channel does, with the addition of extra stuff like live streaming TV, Kids only media, concerts, etc.

An incredible up and coming plugin is called iStream. This plugin can do anything. If you tinker with it enough, you could customize iStream to do everything your other plugins do and centralize it into one location. You can use functions of other plugins. Like if you searched for a movie, it would present results from multiple plugins, like 1Channel, Icefilms, and others. Hard to describe in text, but it's awesome. Here's a video example, might give you an idea, but I haven't watched it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UMKiWllVLrI&noredirect=1

My favorite is What the Furk, but it requires a monthly subscription to Furk.net.
Mashup and iStream are great, but I'm having buffering issues with both. Is Furk better in that department?

Heh... yeah, much better. Furk has the speed of a Newsgroup site. It's literally a server farm with unlimited bandwidth. So you'll only be limited by your own ISP as far as speed goes. Everything I download and stream from Furk goes at my max ISP speed. I've never actually seen Furk buffer for more than a few seconds, and since I got Google Fiber it's never buffered once.

Furk is really incredible, in my opinion. Not just for XBMC either. You can also use it on your computer for downloading anything you need. If what you're looking for can be found on any available torrent site, Furk will be able to play it. For video files, you can stream them directly from Furk in your computer's web browser too. So you can watch it from XBMC on any device, or do the same from any web browser.

Furk is a torrent aggregator. You type in what you want, and if it's not already on Furk's servers, it will scour torrent sites for it, and copy it to Furk's server and notify you when it's ready. But nearly everything I want is already on Furk's server. If any other Furk member has previously requested the file(s), it will be available as a cached copy instantly. So anything remotely popular will be there waiting already.

Not sure if that makes sense or not. But when you see it in action, it's very impressive.

You don't have to hook up a PC in your living room and you have easy access to all your recorded shows on tablets and laptops.
