    Good morning All,

    I have a bit of an issue: My new TV only has HDMI ports so my old media pc is now useless..

    Since the arrival of the next gen consoles I have noticed the price of the XBOX 360 plummet so what I am wondering is.

    1.Does SkyGo still work on the xbox 360?
    2.Are there any issues with a second hand 360 and xlive?
    3.What should I be looking for in a 360; with hacking in mind.
    4.Can you connect to xlive with a hacked 360?
    5.Does XBMC work on 360?
    5a. If so, does it render 1080p content without issue?

    Thanks for your time

    Zoot.

    In my personal opinion, I would buy a cheap graphics card that has an HDMI output and install it into the media PC.

    1. I dun use any media oriented applications on the 360 so I dunno (prolly also not available here)
    2. Old phatties (older then 2008) tend to overheat and it is possible for the 360 to be already banned.
    3. A Phatty made in 2010 or an old glossy Slim one, those are the best.
    4. Nope, you cannot, you can connect to XBL with a hacked DVD drive but homebrew and Live don't coexist. (unless you're willing to spend another 60 quid on a Dual NAND and delve deeper into 360 hacking)
    5. Nope, Old xbox only.

    I'd go with Harsky, just get a new GFX card.
    It'd be cheaper and easier.
    Far easier.

    Thanks for the advice...unfortunately the media center case is low form factor and I have struggled to find a suitable GFX card.

    There should be a simple HDMI one out there.
    Low profile low power ones usually.
