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!

from what i have read is the linux xbmc on the gbox is superior but at the cost of having the popular android apps like netflix. i think that is because it is taking code from a similar box (pivos) and making it work for the gbox.

which is kinda lame considering pivos gives a share of its profits back to XBMC.org

I would be all in on that install if I didn't have to give up WINSCP app.

Yeah. Actually had a tab open that I was gonna post here about when I got the chance, but you beat me to it.

This addon has overtaken 1Channel as the easiest solution for movies and TV. It works brilliantly. Looks very nice. And the best part is that the content seems to be organized much better with regards to movies and TV that I like to watch. Less European crap that I've never heard of. Genres work much better. You can prioritize your sources and quality. You can link it up with Trakt and IMDB. It's very easy to add streaming items to your Library, and it updates and tells you when there's new episodes. Keeps track of what you've watched and what you haven't.

It's the shit.

Also.... I highly recommend getting the XBMCHub Addon Installer, and installing all your addons that way. It works very well, it's incredibly simple to use, and prevents issues like installing an addon that isn't compatible with your version of XBMC, etc.

My brother in law absolutely love it. Great for anyone that doesnt want to tinker. Instead you just download and it works.

I have been using XBMC off and on now for 10 years. I am set in my old ways. lol

I'll have to check that out. I have been getting extremely frustrated with 1channel.

This will be fun. XBMC is now changing their name to Kodi. Starting with version 14. Seems pretty pointless to me.

Anyone found a way to watch SEC Network on XBMC? I know I can get the games, but I'd like to get some of the other programming like their game day (it's hosted in Fayetteville today, so I'd like to watch it).

Aside from borrowing a friend/family member's cable login for WatchESPN, I do not know of any 24/7 streams for that network.

Okay, XBMC issue.

I have a Gbox MX2. I've reflashed the firmware. I've deleted and installed Gotham multiple times. Nothing is overcoming this issue.

When I run any kind of streaming video from any addons (sportsdevil, 1channel, etc..) I get the sound, but I don't get any video. It's just a black screen in the background. Last night, I was streaming the NFL game on Sportsdevil, and I could hear the broadcast.. but the screen was blank. All the XBMC floating menu and such is still there, but there's no video feed.

Any ideas?

That symptom is normally related to the video decoding method being used. Open XBMC. Go to System\Video. Adjust the Settings level at the bottom to Expert. When you do, the Acceleration setting is displayed in the Video list.

You have two options, hardware decoding or software decoding. With the MX2, you'll probably have better luck with hardware decoding.

When you set it to hardware decoding, you then have two options for hardware decoding, libstagefright and mediacodec. With most current Android devices, you want libstagefright turned on, and mediacodec turned off. If mediacodec is turned on, it uses that and only that for decoding, which many Android devices choke on.

Try those settings and see if it's any better. You're welcome to play around with other decoding methods to see what works best. But the above is normally what I hear being recommended to most Android users. Going forward, new Android devices with better hardware will likely require the opposite, libstagefright off and mediacodec on. libstagefright is a bit of a hack to make weaker Android hardware work right. This only applies to Android.

Awesome. I'll give it a try tonight after the kids are in bed. Thanks so much!
