    Guys, I think I might have isolated the Unexpected Error problem to something related to the video card or video settings being used.

    My Onboard Intell video adapter always gives me the unexpected error, the external adapter (a trident, PCI, really old, 8mb) that I'm fiddling with to get 800x480 doesnt give unexpected error... go figure!

    still doesnt explain why it started to work on my laptop... maybe display settings....

    Guys! Get worked up! I'm beta-testying this and it is HUGE... It is extremely flexible, extremely easy to work with... it can act like anything you want basically... Skinning it so so powerful that you can clone mot of the stuff out there just with a skin!

    External app support is the best I have seen so far, everything is just so out of the league of what is available... And the default skin is very useable and another very nice one is coming along...

    External apps from the main menu are supported (So we can call GPS, TV, Phone, etc all from the main menu, as it should be!) different visualization modes, small/med/full video, man its just amazing...

    I'm sure everyone who tries it will stick with it!

    Just wanted to get you all ready!

    Keep in mind this is beta I'm testing, so I'm reporting changes/fixes to netsuo constantly.

    Destinator 3 embeds in the new NMC, and the keyboard (from NMC) can be used easily. It is a very nice feature. Some programs might not embed perfectly but these bugs are being worked out.

    NMC is above my expectations in all aspects! I wrote a few threads here sking about what is the nicest frontend, for this and for that, and NMC is going to be the nicest all around... Configuration is a breeze, with a really good interface, it looks like professional software, not "free-time" project... This is TIGHT!!!

    I'd say bug netsuo so he releases it quickly! Even I can't wait for the final 07 version!

    I'm still waiting to get my copy so I can update my skin to take advantage of all the new features

    *hint* *hint*

    That is one of the big pluses I like about NMC is it's versatility. You can pretty much do anything you want with a new skin. All the others I have played with are "limited" in some way. I use it on my home machine as a replacement for winamp

    Hurry it up boys!

    We do appreciate your efforts though!!
