Boxee is still rocking and rolling, so I may stick with it. One thing I forgot about was the simple fact that it can run ISOs in a single click without installing DeamonTools for MediaBrowser.

I still haven't configured my Harmony remote but it's on the list of things to do.

Also, I'm replacing my 720P 32" Westinghouse with a 1080P 40" Sony Bravia tomorrow night
Okay, you do realize that MetaBrowser won't automatically download metadata for stuff you already have. You need to do a manual "process all movies" to get the metadata for stuff you already have. You will then be greeted with a screen to confirm that the right movies are being detected (and you can change which one it should be there too), then you click "process" and it gets everything it can.

Then if you setup folder watching, it will automatically download the metadata for anything you add to the folder that's being watched.

When you say it's "still not showing up right in WMC" do you mean in MediaBrowser? Because Media Center won't recognize the metadata.....So, is anything showing up in mediaBrowser? Or only parts of the metadata? Have you tried clearing the cache? (either from the options page, or manually by deleting "c:\ProgramData\MediaBrowser\Cache").

It should really just work...
