As you may have read elsewhere, I installed XBMC and I have issues with it as a Windows program. For one thing it doesn't play nicely - I can't find a way to reduce it to a window rather than taking over the whole screen other than to minimise it to the task bar, so you can't keep it running while you do something else in the background. The other killer is no fast play forwards/backwards, or skip. the controls are there, but don't work so that may be something to do with the Humax. Pain though. However, it's the first thing I've tried which actually works. I tried Windows Media Player, which could see the Humax but not play the video until I installed the K-Lite codec pack, but I probably made a mess of that because once the video played at all it was jerky. So, what else is there, and which is the best?
