All in the title, fairly obviously.  Quick poll, as I look at changing from Vista Media Centre (*sigh*) so I can use Freeview HD.  Interested to see what people are using and prefer...

What software are you using for your HTPC, and do you do freeview HD?

Mediaportal/TV Server with Freeview HD DVB -T and DVB-S




When you live your life on Twitter and Facebook, and are only friends with like minded people on Twitter and Facebook, you are not living in the real world. You are living in a narcissistic echo chamber.

GB-PVR (sometimes MediaPortal too) and DVB-S Freeview.  Sometimes use Freeview|HD with GB-PVR too.
