My hand is up for XP-MCE right now because it does everything i really *need* it to do, never crashes or misses a recording so far and is easy for the wife to drive.  Oh, and webguide rocks!

My hand is half-up for Vista MCE due to the fact that although everything works, I havent left it running long enough to confirm that its as stable as my XP MCE (if it ain't broke and all...)  Oh, and no webguide with vista mce tv-pack sucks :( !

Media Portal. DVB-T and you can also mix your DVB-T with DVB-S and Analogue if you want.

MCE has a nice interface and is a bit easier to setup but it is also more limited in what it can do.

My thoughts are my own and are in no way representative of my employer.
