Re: Trying Windows 7 Media Center . .
I ran MCE 2005 for years with hardly any problems. Then again, I used it as a DVR and not an all in one media player.
When I upgraded to W7, I decided to try to get integrated playback for all media. It was an absolute nightmare with x64. I went to 32 bit, which is fine for a media center box, installed Shark codecs and everything works instantly and like a charm.
