To what extent does a MCE2005 HTPC rely on an internet connection for the program guide? Although My machine is not far off it's final resting place (which can be 6 foot under if it doesn't behave) I have yet to connect it to the internet. This is primarily because I am 'between broadband connections' and that little nasty called getting rid of your marker on your phone line by your previous ISP. I can hopefully order my new one tomorrow. Which also begs the question of which one. I've more or less decided on BTinternet, which to be honest, is because everyone I know from the It world seems to be on it. I had quite fancied Tesco broadband too so do we need a big always on connection? Any advice gratefully recieved, Ta, Jon.
