Giving it a chance, I have a pi with XBMC on it and can always go to XBMC on the desktop if it drives me nuts. Just giving it a go. Even if I go with XBMC it does not answer the CEC issue.

The music search anyway is faster in windows 8 vs xbmc as well. I have about 6-700GB of music ~200K songs and XBMC does not work as well, windows 8 takes almost no time to do the search off my home server.
