    Hello there, I am building a HTPC and using XBMC as my primary frontend as i found i like the gui interface the best for my movies, TV shows, and music as most of the media I have is TV shows, though I am also equiping a BD player, And a capture card. My question is as I know XBMC dosent support the latter I figured I would Use the WMC for capturing(I will rarely ever use this feature just nice to have though) and PowerDVD 10 for the blu-ray playback.

    My question is under windows 7 is there anyway I can have the HTPC boot into a menu on startup that allows me to select XBMC, PowerDVD, and WMC seperatly? I would just like the system to startup directly into a menu with just those 3 program options and be able to select with an MCE, or iMon Controller, anybody know of any scripts or where to find more info on this?
    Thanks

    I know a number of programs can be integrated into WMC and that would be the easiest way to be able to access other programs with a remote. I did some searching you should be able to integrate both PowerDVD and XBMC into WMC.
