I came across this free front-end Media Portal the other day at it looks very interesting. I did a search and cannot find any other mention of it on this forum. Feature List Highlights are:- Can be made to look just like MCE 2005 or skinned to your taste. Integrated DVD player does VMR9 Renderless mode and can use ffdshow for post processing! Alternatively you can spec' an external player. e.g. TheaterTek Appears to support a lot of capture / TV cards for viewing and timeshifting. The manual makes interesting reading regarding its capabilities. I haven't had chance to install it and give it a go yet so I can't say if it lives up to its claims but definitely feel it's worth a go. Anyone any experience of this software?
