Re: Trying Windows 7 Media Center . .
My dad bought an ASROCK Ion 330 for his HTPC and I was able to set it up today. I installed Windows 7 x64 and XBMC Camelot. One thing we noticed right off the bat was that XBMC could not run GPU Hardware Acceleration properly. MKVs were extremely laggy.
So I found a cool website that showed me how to run Media Player Classic in full screen for all MKVs, and then return to XBMC when the video is stopped. Really awesome workaround and it works perfectly!
My dad is thrilled with the new HTPC. +1 for XBMC!!!
