When Microsoft released mce i was totally excited and couldnt wait to get it all setup. now about a year later with 3 viewing stations, and predominantly using the pd7200 to view with wireless keyboard/mouse i rarely use mce2005. most of the stuff i wanna do on my pc just doesnt work with mce. for instance my 2 main things are surfing the net and gaming. both of which i can not do in mce. the only real use for mce is a base to watch dvds, or shud i say sum1 completely clueless with pcs to watch dvds. but with hd stuff like .ts files i find media player classic plays it a hell of a lot better than mce with nvidias decoder. so all in all after thinking mce would revolutionise my life i now never use it, and am quite tempted to run longhorn beta which i have on cd, although i am worried about compatability with my new games/appz. so who else out there is really using mce, and if so why!!
