Is the Xbox modded?

Best resource is here: http://www.xbmc4xbox.org.uk/wiki/Installing_XBMC_for_Xbox

It's not supported anymore so you might find it difficult to get help. However it used to come included on the image that was flashed to the Xbox drive after modding, depending on what image you used. That way there was no real "install" required as it just worked out of the box once modding was done.

If the Xbox is chipped, its pretty straight forward, if not, you need to mod it as mentioned above.

Damn handy units to have around, pity they dont handle any HD stuff :) Kids love theirs as I format shift their DVDs onto it to save them scratching the discs etc.

Xboxes make great extenders for windows media center, and you can get HD stuff to run over that. drop MCE on a win7 box somewhere and use that to host the media. another alternative is using DLNA play-to. Neither of these require xbox to be modded

You can't do that with an original Xbox. I'm assuming that's what the OP is talking about.

OP can you confirm what generation of Xbox you're talking about? Xbox or Xbox 360?
