why not use mediacenter...? It works pretty good
Trying to find an alternative for my home entertainment use for XP that's not media center I came across two very potentially cool alternatives for front ends...
"Media Portal" http://www.team-mediaportal.com
"Media Portal II" (development) http://www.team-mediaportal.com/news...w_release.html
"MeediOS" (previously Meedio which got bought out by Yahoo) http://www.meedios.com/
Media Portal II is running on my htpc, and it is so much better than mce, especially music handling is better, and alot more open plugin structure, i currently have a complete shoutcast radio plugin and a FANatic hardware monitor plugin, this is all i need.
