    So, what's the deal with WiiMC? I know that the media player is almost perfect but will it ever get the same boxart and background support found in XBMC? It's been so long since there was an update and I'm just curious about whether it's still being worked on or abandoned.

    No commits to the SVN since March 31. I guess it's not being actively developed any more.

    WiiMC, like the Wii, is for all intents and purposes feature-complete and dead. If a significant bug crops up, I think it's probable an update would be released to address the issue.

    If anybody can figure out how to parse command line arguments to WiiMC we would be able to write a wiiflow plugin (and therefore display videos with full coverart and play them in WiiMC). I have been through the source code myself and cannot find the solution. Anyone that does it will get a pet on the back from me and wii community.
