    I understand you can only buy this together with a PC. Is it availble in another way?

    I haven't tried hibernation yet. But I'll try it in the next little while and let you know.

    I know it is also shipping as part of the usual Nov Action pack update subscription. I saw it listed when I was checking up when it would be shipping out...and BAM! OEM version of Windows XP Media Center 2005

    Is it touchscreen friendly? I wasn't too impressed with the last MCE in that respect.

    Can you post a few screenshots of the music interface.

    Thanks.

    Going into hibernation mode took about 9 seconds, coming out took about 21seconds. So its not that much faster then a straight boot but I would say that the system is in idle a lot sooner then a straight boot. I.e. That time period where explorer is loaded, but XP still loading "stuff".

    What video card and driver are you using with MCE 2005 on an EPIA board? I can't my setup to play video even though everything else needed to play video is installed and working.

    I found MCE 2004 just fine with a touch screen. MCE 2005 is worse - it has bugs such that you click something, the button clearly presses and then something else launches instead. Very sucky.

    tejesh83, Please read the review. I stated everything you need to know about touch screen. Also all the pictures I posted are of the Music Interface Program that is called Media Center.

    I didn't feel the need to post any info about the rest of the operating system, because I feel this will be primarily used for touch screen and non touch screen carputers.

    I myself am personaly buying a 10-12" touchscreen AND the remote. The remote in my opinion is well worth having.

    Also if you want to purchase it legaly, you dont have to purchase it with a computer, www.newegg.com. As some have said, you could buy a hard drive cable and be eligible to buy the OEM Version. I agree because they dont say anything about buying a full computer with it, they just say you have to purchase something else in order to buy the OEM Version.

    Arathranar, Try reinstalling your touch screen. It should have no problems! There aren't any bugs with 2005 if you have it installed right and any driver updates it might have, installed.
