I also meant to mention that as of last night, thanks to the hard work of
Chris Pinkham, Blu-ray, DVD, and ISO playback via storage group is now
possible, meaning you can house all of your discs all across your backends,
using storage groups, and adding new frontends will "just work" with no
additional configuration, and no network mounts required. Add to that the
fact that we are dangerously close to being able to do HDMV menus in
blu-ray, you can switch between titles on Blu-ray in Myth, Myth has
multi-angle, proper subtitle and audio track handling... and using some hack
to stream a title to XBMC is a tough sell.
