Showtime v2.99.401- Massive Bug Fixes and Performance Tweaks

Andoma has updated Showtime – a PS3 Homebrew Home Theater System application. The new release fixes some embarrassing bugs that slipped by in the previous release. Showtime is a media player for use on HTPC media centers. It is primarily intended to be controlled via keypad input such as a IR or bluetooth remote control, keyboards, etc but works also very well with a pointer device.
