    XBMC started out on the original xbox and while the project has somewhat left it for the PC there are still updates. You only need a modded xbox (quite easy to do and several equally viable methods to do so)

    Either way it has an incredible skinning engine (not your typical couple of pictures to stick under text job):

    I will note that many skins these days require the above SD resolutions (which the original xbox is capable of kicking out if you have the cables- http://www.gamesx.com/avpinouts/xbox.htm or you can buy them)
