    Thats looks kind of cool..... So does it all actually all open inside of MCE, or is it just opening on top of MCE. I see you like Dexter, my parents are obsessed with that show.

    What kind of "testing" did you do to fry the USB hub?

    The way I have it setup is audio/video works inside of MCE. When you select any external apps it automatically puts MCE in the background and the app is in the foreground. Some of my apps will in addition turn down or mute any audio coming from MCE. The program runs native, but I can close any of them inside MCE.
    Also the rocker switches has multi functions too. So if I wanted to I could close any program all I would have to do is press one switch.
    I installed two rockers switches. Each switch has two functions. So technically I have Four buttons for any program.

    "testing"

    long story short...

    I was talking to a friend that runs a computer store about mp3car's 12v usb hub. He said that he had one (a 12v usb hub). I bought it and I didn't check to see if it was really a 12v hub. Connected it to the car and it caught on fire. It wasn't a 12v hub and the overload fried everything that was pulled into it. Two hubs MS GPS unit, and my Logitech controller. Now I have store credit so I'm okay... I should've checked.

    Very interesting use of MCE...I'm lauching MCE from within Centrafuse 3.0 now, but maybe I should try the opposite...very slick.

    How did you customize MCE? MCE Studio?

    Thanks.

    Why not just power the hub from the PSU 5V rail, or buy a 5V Car Cig Adapter and tie it into a 12V source? I did that with my Mini-DVR, just took a old car plug from a XM unit I was no longer using and tada!!!!!!!!!

    OMG looking at your price list, I see lots of things that should have been way less then what you paid. You seemed to have got ripped off. I remember when I first started though, I didnt watch what I spent either.

    Would you like to share your input of MCE as front end in this thread? I'm thinking about going that route myself (I posted one picture of your customization there, if you don't mind).

    Congrats, it surely is hard work to install in a Porsche!
