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.




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.
