    i have xp pro, id like to add media center to it.
    i really don't want to go out and buy winxp media center just for the media center components. my version of xp pro is legit with a VLK

    could i use something like nlite to add in the components?

    nevermind, i'll just use media portal. it's just about the same + it's free

    too bad my ati all in wonder card doesn't work with it

    ati has such shitty support when it comes to that stuff. Do you just need it for vid out? I've always used cheap $40 nvidia cards

    i was going to hook up my pc to my new tv that comes in on thursday. i guess i could just use the vga2 plug and a long cord, then just play VLC in full screen.

    that will get me by, thats all i wanted to do anyways

    media portal is cool, but it freezes up on my video_ts of sienfeld on the menus. however jackass 2 video_ts works fine...hmm
