Also istream is good for pulling together sources and can link up to your imdb watchlist

Mob, is the box wifi?
Wouldn't mind one in my bedroom, but I've not got a phone socket in there.

Homeplugs can be a good alternative to wifi

Got one of these the other day, I've only just started messing about with it and so far got navi-x Cool well impressed. Couldn't seem to get genesis tho as the repo was down? Any tips on must have apps would be appreciated, Mob and anyone else who has one?

Copped the one linked above.

Can I feasibly cancel my sky sports and BT expensive bollocks? How good is the stream during matches?

Just google XBMC addons and check out what you can access. Loads on there and worth the money. Get one with wifi and the best spec you can afford.

How do the streamers make money? Do they overlay adverts etc or is there a small fee?

Less is better with these boxes, there is a tendacy to get loads of addons. But will make your box crash etc.
genesis, istream all good. Also worth setting live TV up, lots of sports etc.

I tried a hooky subscription from ntv, basically sky for 20 euro a month.
