Default Good Media Center Tweaks.

Does anyone have some good mce tweaks or tips to get the most of this interface?

I got one!
http://apcmag.com/6488/how_to_play_ripped_dvds_on_vista

I found this over at AVS forums and looks good tried it and liking it now i don't have to stick dvd's in the player everytime i wanna watch a movie.

Another app that would do this is MY Movies which catalogs your library.

Anyone have some good tips like adding online radio stations or adding online video content to the already availble content?

intenet TV is nice but doesn't change their content often.

I would like to see a hulu.com plug in or a youtube plugin for vista.

Good thread Mr Bigman. Hulu support in MCE would be awesome. A plugin for XBMC would also be nice. ::

XBMC works perfectly in sync with a computer that has media center.

My xbox works perfectly as an extender with my vista desktop on the network

I meant a pluging for XBMC to work with HULU.

I have my xbox, 360 and PS3 setup just fine to work with my Vista powered Media Centre. ::
