It looks awesome, and works well for me. Since this device hooks up to TVs with HDMI, I figured it would make perfect sense to run this.

Here's a screenshot of what the latest version looks like.



Here's a link to the download page: http://xbmc.org/download/

I plan to do this in about a month when I move into my new appartement and get me some big-ass LED TV.

SO much more on XBMC that does exactly what Navi did. Search! Showbocks android app has also proven reliable.

Uhmm Navi stopped working? That's odd because I watched Days of Future Past on Navi just in the month of July.

Hi

In fact it is not a emulator.

It is a emulator frontend.

I followed this steps to make it work:

The configuration is not easy at all, but it is worth.

I did some scripts to make it possible to have ALL roms with name, genre, cover, snap.

Thanks for letting me know that there's an app call XBMC, it's really nice.
Yes, I've tried using it, works great. Now I can transform my Shield into super-awesome-media-device
