I have a xbox1 with mod-chip + xbmc which works really well. It also
acts as a front end for MythTV (freeview card in computer).

The mod-chip is not strictly necessary, as there are software 'bugs'
that can be used to allow installation/use of xbmc, but the mod-chip
apparently makes life easier.


xbmc = xbox media centre; see google
