Centralized XBMC library

Problem: I have multiple AppleTV’s running XBMC on them all reading from the same central server.  The issue was that the thumbnails might be on one and not the other, also watching TV series its hard to keep track of which episode I am on since I watch from multiple locations.

Solution: Doing some reading you can actually make all of the XBMC instances store data to a central server running MySQL.  Why would you want to do that? Well there are a few reasons, besides having everything in sync across the board it also gives you the ability to resume playback from where you left off in another room.

Avatar The Movie

Avatar Movie PosterSo I was sitting at home the other night and saw that Avatar was playing on TV. While it was not the 3D version that I had been holding out on watching I decided to give it a go anyways…. And really I guess I missed something, as it wasn’t THAT awesome of a movie.  This might have been the fact that I was watching it on a 42in LCD and not a 40ft screen in 3D.  Anyways anyone else have any thoughts on this?

Blood Diamond

So I was over at Ryans place last night and watch Blood Diamond, I must say its a much better movie than I thought it was going to be.  You should check it out if you get a chance.
