Showtime (HTPC Media Player) v3.2 Released

Some new homebrew that isn’t a backup manager or an emulator — this is andoma’s Showtime media player for HTPC media centers.  Me, I use the DLNA/UPnP-enabled PS3 Media Server (on Linux) and the GameOS provided features to display video, play audio, etc… but I understand your setup/tastes may differ, so for the HTPC folk — it’s Showtime!
