How to Install NewzBook on XBMC Live

NewzBook is an application I wrote to centrally manage my downloads and media. It has integration points with various indexing sites, SABnzbd, media management, etc. I originally designed the application for the Popcorn Hour, but I am now using XBMC again. I personally use the XBMC Live variant, so I’ve written up some instructions so other XBMC Live users could also use my NewzBook app.If you haven’t heard of NewzBook before, I would recommend checking out this thread on the NMT forums which describes what it does… I’ve also attached a few screenshots after the jump below.

Modding the 360

Before my xbox 360 even arrived I was thinking about modding it.  I think the ability to mod the 360 is another one of the tipping points that pushed me over the edge in purchasing the 360.  While you can’t currently use homebrew apps on the 360, I’m hoping you will be able to sometime in the future. After a week of having the xbox I decided to purchase a mod-chip for it.
