    Radio, 'click the red button now' and digital text were all features I wrongly assumed would be available with my new media setup, but they're not :mad: .

    Is this a feature of all MCE systems or just peculiar to those of us who have the same setup as me?

    Essentially what I want to know is: which "triple pillar of the world, [has] transform'd me into a strumpets fool"?

    (1) Windows MCE 2005;
    (2) Digital tuners (x2 Hauppauge Nova-T PCI);
    (3) Media Centre PC (Elonex Artisan LX).

    This was the reason that I didn't choose the MCE route and bought a Nebula card instead. MCE is an international product so support for Freeview features is low on their radar.

    In terms of TV functionality it lacks some basic features that you get in a £40 Freeview set-top box.

    No digital text,
    Therefore no interactive applications.
    No Radio.
    No subtitles.
    No support for the official broadcast EPG.

    I believe that Radio is now in beta over on the hauppauge forums.
