    Erm, have you tried Meedio or it's predecessor MY HTPC?

    ... both are far more flexible and easier to use than MS Media Center(sic) Showshifter is more flexible than MS Media Center (although not as easy to use)

    Tried...

    Media Portal
    Medio
    Beyond Media
    GBPVR
    TVedia
    MCE2005

    MCE2005 was the winner for me. So easy to use, very happy with PQ from Nividia codecs. I also think there is going to be a huge volume of plugins coming out for MCE this year.

    To be honest I really wanted Media Portal to be my favourite, but it just doesnt look as good as MCE. Its also still in its beta so I will look at it again when its matured a bit.
