I know this is something alot of you have been bitching about for awhile.

What is AudioEngine? A complete re-write of the core audio sub-system of XBMC, and a two-year project comprising some 22,000 lines of code.
Spear-headed by lead-developer gnif, with contributions from many other team developers (dddamian, gimli, fneufneu, anssi, memphiz and others!), AudioEngine brings high-definition audio to the already amazing XBMC. No matter the audio source, AE handles the decoding, resampling, transcoding, encoding and streaming of your media, including for the first time DTS-MA, TrueHD and 24-bit audio. XBMC has never sounded better!

I would rather see them do another full release with this included.  Not sure if it makes sense to use a nightly build?

Why not?
I've always used the beta builds.

The nightly builds for XBMC are generally rock solid.  You could always get a bad egg, but I know several people that permanently run nighties.

It should still work.

I had no issue going from Eden to the nightly.

Are you upgrading frequently?  My concern is mostly with that.   Whether the nightlys will be stable enough that I don't have to worry about continuously updating

Wow, I didn't know this existed. I am planning on building a HTPC and I was going to use Windows media center. This looks like a better alternative. Does this do TV channels with a cable card, and will it give me a guide? (like a channel guide with tv listings and such)

Like so:

Pretty sure you're better off using WMC for PVR / TV viewing functionality and XBMC for everything else.

I think so, but it's not in the main branch.

Thanks for the responses. That's a shame, XBMC looks really nice, it would be nice to have an all in one application available. I think a big draw for an HTPC is the PVR ability. I can get rid of my DVR/Cable box.

Does anyone else use the Android app with XBMC? Seems when I upgraded to this version my TV shows don't populate with info and artwork in the app itself like with 11.0 final. I can still use it as a remote and my movies have the artwork/info.

If you want a PVR, use MythTV.  I believe there are MythTV add-ons for XBMC that help interface with it.

I was thinking about setting up a PVR but because of package pricing it would cost me less to continue using Verizon's DVR box.  Would have been interesting to set one up but don't see a point in my case.
