    I'm finally getting my courage up to build a HTPC, my question is what software do i need installed? i've heard a lot about windows MCE and its remote control. but i've also come across iMon and i can't work out whether iMon needs MCE or can work with XP.
    Basically i'm a bit cluless with the software side of this project so any suggestions of a good set up would be greatly appreciated.

    whilst i'm here i have another quick question, i'm after a soundcard with a digital coaxial out to send to my amp for 5.1 surround sound with dvd playback, i've looked at the x-mystique and was wondering if there were any other recommendations or alternatives? i'm not wanting to spend much more than the x-mystique would cost.
    many thanks

    For the money I dont think you will get much better than the X-Mystique.
    I love mine.
