Develop a Plug-in for XBMC media center allowing search and stream NZB
Develop a plug-in for http://xbmc.org/ allow us to search and stream videos right inside XBMC media center
this will be the number 1 feature of them all... best this is that all you need to do is give us an API.. the community will do the rest.. not so difficult on you side.
add-on will include:
-search capabilities (using bintube.com / nzbs.org / binsearch etc.)
-downloaded nzbs should be saved on the monitoring folder
-the partially extracted video file should begin playing as soon as it can be.
all of the above can be done anyway manually since xbmc is perfectly capable of playing partially downloaded videos (for most formats). gathering it together as an add-on though makes it a great and convenient way to watch stuff on demand and adds great value the the product!
remember! if you build it they will come :)

Bintube streamer on XBMC would be awesome!! I would bet your membership would go up significantly if you had an XBMC plugin for streaming, especially with the recent developments with MegaUpload, FileSonic, etc...
+1 for Windows Media Center Plugin!
i too agree that an addon for XBMC (and/or Boxee, now that XBMC supports a similar addon system as boxee it will be easier to port it the code from one to the other). It would be better without the search functionality builtin to the addon though, simplistic and easy of use is the goal with media centers... too many things to do makes it more difficult for users to use, especially non-techie users. This should definitely be on the top of the priority list as media centers are the hot topic.

XBMC plugin is a great idea ... maybe even one for Boxee
Or a plugin for Windows Media Center =)
