Default Re: Trying Windows 7 Media Center . .

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!!!
Or you could have just installed XBMC live and used the VDPAU gpu acceleration
