This new release includes the ability to store and playback Blu-Ray DVDs to your hard drive. For Blu-Ray playback xLobby uses the Arcsoft software platform, you can download the trial version for evaluation before you purchase the software. The new build includes the ability to seemlessly use the xLobby remote to control the arcsoft player. If you wish to use your own remote control then modify the existing remote control triggers in the skin editor under triggers to your specific remote and keys. The xlobby spider system will automatically download standard movie artwork and modify it to overlay the Blu-Ray DVD design. The import process for Blu-Ray movies is the same as for Mpeg2 DVDs, except for some of the Menus indicate the disc is Blu-Ray.
