I can because mine arrived this morning!! Looks like it comes with Rollup 2 with it. Ran windows update afterwards and it found another small (3.5meg) rollup to install but i think that was an extra media centre one.pio5100h said:Can anybody tell me whether the iDea 500 already has the Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 Update Rollup 2 installed 'out of the box' and/or what updates are necessary ??
Is this the latest MCE 2005 updated version ?
Nice one! your gonna have to do a review of it asap!watusi said:I can because mine arrived this morning!!
I think HDMI overscan is a given isn't it? Bit of playing around with powerstrip would probably fix. PQ with VGA/DVI seems good. Having spent the evening using it I'm quite happy with it now. My post before seemed more negative than I intended.pio5100h said:Thx watusi for all these answers.
With language selections I meant... the language the OS is in.
It leaves me a bit... alarmed. HDMI overscan and not great PQ.... I hope I can fix this with the 46X2000 LCDTV setting.
No CD's N ... So we in fact DON'T get MCE 2005 with it. Maybe those 2 Backup DVD/CD's are it ?
The analogue tuners are the ones that are supposed to be bad... you're lucky to live in the UK.
Handle 1080p stuff not all that well... do you mean it even CoreAVC + T2300 can't cope with the 1080p??? The AMD64 3500+/GF6800GT does quite well on that !
Thanks again !!
