    What does it not do right? (other than the friggin volume being maxed out LOL... It takes a while to re-activate too.)

    the volume thing.. that's it ... but the other issue is that these drivers don't support usb2.0 so dvd playback is a little slow

    I use it on a 10.4" 1024x768 touchscreen. I only have a couple complaints. Toucscreen navigation is a little tough in certain spots (little playlist arrow) and the mp3 player is limited. It really needs more simple options like track time and better flowing controls. But Version 2 is supposed to take care of both these.

    But it works great as a shell to boot other programs. Its skinnable and you can launch any program you want from the main menu. Right now I'm launching 4am music player which I made my own skin for with better touchscreen buttons.

    Heres my routine: Boot to myHTPC. I launch 4am music player, make a playlist or select a pre-made one. Hit the minimize button and it hides behind myHTPC and brings up the main menu again. Then I can bring up GPS software with the music playing or front/rear cameras (working on cams still). If I need to change mp3 tracks I just drop to myHTPC again and click on the 4am button. The video player in myHTPC isnt bad since I dont need as many options with it. Browsing by picture is nice but it still has the little arrow problem.

    Theres lots of fun plugins too. I love the myGAMES plugin. It lets you browse and launch any game for about any emulator by picture just like launching a movie.
