How do you like sage for your movie collection? Last time I tried it was very unimpressed compared to WMC + media browser and XBMC.

A guy built a plugin and a UI that takes advantage of the MyMovies database system. He's done an unbelievable job on it. It's not quite finished, but you could hardly tell. He calls it SageMyMovies and I use that. The only problem with it is that there are so many images to cache in my 750+ movie collection that images load a bit slower than I'd like on my HD Theater 300 extenders. Not horrible though.

There's some screen shots towards the bottom of the first post.

There's also another plugin I use that someone developed that automatically downloads posters and background images. Then another plugin that resizes those images to be used as posters and backgrounds with the default views of Sage. I have that installed as well. It gives you a nice little movie wall affect if setup a certain way.

Has anybody had stuttering problems with XBMC? I just built my HTPC/NAS with XBMC on W7 and it's awesome for everything except movies seem to stutter a tad. Just enough to notice. I've read XBMC has stuttering problems with some files? Seems to happen on SD movies and bluray rips. CPU is only around %20, too. I want to try WMC but hate how it locks files into the library even after you change/delete them. Is there a way to have it update at a certain time interval?

The loudest things are the HDD's. Forgot how loud they can be. Pics:

Here's my HTPC build for the basement. The TV doubles as my monitor for the HTPC and the NAS box in the PowerSpec case under the table.

Asus M4A88TD-M/USB3 Mobo
Athlon II X2 250 3.0ghz
8gb G.Skill DDR3 1333mhz
(3) Samsung F2 EcoGreen 1tb in RAID 5
Samsung DVD
Seasonic SS-400FL Fanless 400w 80+ Gold psu
WinTV HVR-2250 Tuner card
Asus Xonar DG Sound card

I'm real happy with the build so far, there have been a few "issues" along the way but nothing major. The Thermaltake LanBox Lite is a great case, totally modular and easy to assemble/disassemble plus it has a really nice glossy finish. The rest of the parts make an amazing HTPC with lots of room for growth. The last pic is a shot of my APC UPS lcd screen showing the wattage drawn. The HTPC was the only thing connected and I was watching TV. That view was at the low end but it hovers around 29-40w while running and even lower when idling (18-19w!!)

Here's my setup, using the following components:-

Antec Fusion Remote HTPC Case - Black
Corsair XMS3 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 10666C8 1333MHz Dual-Channel
Gigabyte GA-880GM-UD2H AMD 880G
Kingston SSDNow V-Series 30GB 2.5" SATA-II Solid State Hard Drive
AMD Athlon II X2 Dual Core 250 3.00GHz
Corsair CX 400W ATX Power Supply
Samsung SH-S223C/BEBE 22x DVD±RW SATA ReWriter

The box is running XBMC and all content is streamed from my file server over gigabit ethernet.

I'm also running Hyperspin, which I've setup to launch directly from XBMC using the Executor addon. I have a couple of Xbox 360 PC controllers which work a treat for all my emulators.

I've never had stuttering issues with XBMC. Although my content is fairly consistent with containers & codecs used.

This looks great! Is it easy to setup the emulators with 360 controllers? Maybe post a guide in the HTPC forum on how to do this. I'd be interested.

Also, which movie db scraper are you guys using to tag your movies & tv shows?
