Well Ive made (another) stupid investment. After getting tired off the problems with my old Kiss DP-1500 I thought that it was time to join the MCE-wave. So I forked 2.000 out on a tiny Shuttle-X media center hmmmmm, it wasnt impressive, it froze from time to time, dvd play-back stopped once in a while, and the Hauppauge 500 tuner was more or less useless. Bur my dealer told me to wait until Vista game out, which would solve all my problems. So finally my Vista Home Premium was in the mail. It solved most of my problems, but it gave a bigger one! I just cant watch DVDs anymore playback freezes every second or third minute - and catches up again for a minute or two then it freezes again and so on and so on! I can see the my harddrive spins when the DVD freezes when then harddrive stops spinning, then the DVD catches up again.
Shall I dump the MCE in the ocean next me or have any of you an idea of what can be wrong ??
