I was just wondering if you guys may have any plans to bring an App for Crunchyroll to Windows Media Center or even the Xbox 360?

I currently have the Boxee app installed and can only say, while it's nice to have some kind of option for watching on my TV, it doesn't really seem to work as well or as a simple Windows Media Center app would. I have to jump through hoops whenever I launch it just to get it display on the Monitor it is set to display on at startup, it has issues when being used with a Windows Media Center Remote and I don't want to have to buy that Boxee Box when I have a perfectly good Media Center Computer and Xbox 360 as it is.

So any plans on bringing TV Viewing options via any other means then Boxee anytime soon? I already know you took a pole on an Android App, another thing I would love, but I haven't really seen anything on Windows Media Center subject in the Forums.

Thanks

I'm sure it would require a Gold Subscription, but most people with Xbox 360 already have that anyway.

The latest version of Boxee seems to have fixed the issue with it not starting on the second monitor when it is configured to do so. With that fixed it also make it less tedious having to start Windows Media Center and then clicking the app that launches Boxee from there as well. I still can't use the play, pause and such because of it starting media player in the background though. I guess if I can find a way to get around that issue, or even if they sell a separate Boxee remote for the computer, I wouldn't mind just using it. It would be nice having a Media Center app still, so people could use it without much fuss.
