    Beautifull job on the install man!!

    Just out of curiosity, what are your PC specs? I run MCE on a 2600+ AMD Athalon XP with 1GB PC3200 Ram, and it runs kinda laggy.

    Peace,

    Rafster

    Media Centre is just a bolt on to windows XP. At the moment, it is only available to oem's. You won't be able to download it and install it onto xp pro. You would have to re-install xp with the xp media edition. (Does this make sense?)

    The radio is an Alpine CDA-9855 (LOVE IT)

    The PC specs is a via Epia M-1000 w/ 60GB 5400rpm laptop drive, slimline DVD+RW, 1GB RAM, and then all the onboard video, sound, etc etc.

    I used an n-lite install of media center to keep it small and fast. The only delays I have are when I initially click on "my music" and it loads the cover art for my CD's. I have close to 100 CD's so it takes about 7-9 seconds to load them all.

    What PC?

    How did you get the via Epia M-1000 with onboard video to work with media center? Media Center is very picky as to which hardware components are used. So either you got lucky or had some erroneus issues with video drivers and or software to get this to work properly I would imagine. Any tips?

    Triple that. I have it running on an MII12000, and its still running too slow.

    MCE was indeed running a bit laggy (well technically it ran GREAT until my CD collection got over 70 CD's, then the cover art loads would lag and the database was slow to load). I actually switched to Meedio last week and havent looked back since. Not only is it twice as fast as MCE, but its skinnable and more configurable and works with the windows MCE remote.
