Turn an Old Computer into an XBMC Home Theater PC

Turn an Old Computer into an XBMC Home Theater PC
18th September 2011

XBMC (click for download and info) ismy favorite media center software. It’s free and it’s better than it’s paid alternatives thanks to a slick, customizable interface that plays all sorts of media from the majority of networked and local destinations. It can pull content from the web, tell you the weather, double as a retro video game console, and much more. What’s really great is that it can run on a super cheap, underpowered nettop. That may also mean your old computer is entirely adequate for the job. Either way, you’ll be up and running a home theater system that’s ahead of its time before you know it.
