    Ok, recently, I've found out the wonders of streaming free TV shows/movies through Kodi on my computers; it's great. Only problem is, I can't get any of these working on XBMC Eden, the last version available on PowerPC. I've been looking everywhere trying to find addons, or repositories, but when I do, either the links are broken or the addons are old enough that they're broken. At least Debian on PowerPC seems to have the latest version (16.0), but my video card (Radeon 9700) doesn't play well (suffers from the default depth bug, had to install wonky patched Ubuntu MATE mesa debs) with Debian and crashes when I try to play any video. Anything I can do about this? Thanks.

    This is complete conjecture on my part, but this was just released for the original Xbox. I plan on installing this into my Xbox later today. This guy went and updated everything with working repositories and plugins (I really want to try out the cCloud TV plugin; a site which works well on my 2008 iMac). Maybe, just maybe there's something within the archive that can help you.

    Has anyone ever tried to add plugins or anything else from XBMC4Xbox to the old PowerPC version of XBMC?

    The xbmc/kodi team cut all access for eden addons to Internet for some silly reason. Think Skype and Dropbox.

    I've just tried that by just dragging all of the plugins from the plugins and script folders to XBMC Eden's addons folder in Application Support. Most of the addons appear in XBMC itself (save for 1Channel), but none of them work (they all show Script failed) except for Navi-X; that looked promising, I could search fine, but I couldn't play any videos. Whenever I select anything, the "Working" loading box shows up in the bottom right corner, but it just goes away and nothing happens. Maybe I could be doing something wrong? Never really used Navi-X before.

    There are several addons that still work, such as anime FTW and some "red lights" addons xD

    I installed this archive on my Xbox and couldn't get ANY of the plugins to work. So much for that...
