    Can you post a few screenshots of the music interface.

    Thanks.

    I'm using a Xenarc VGA with touch and it works GREAT!!

    if there was some cool way in which you could use Hybrid's XM-Direct adapter and MCE 2005 it would be awesome...

    So how do you reach the Play DVD option on the main menu? Is that visible if you haven't enabled TV input. The TV guide & inability to directly click the Play DVD button on the main menu are the two worst touchscreen bugs introduced by MCE 2005. So if you don't watch TV, maybe you won't see the new bugs.

    You have to download special drivers for MCE 2005. NVidia and ATI have drivers for it but I don't know what EPIA uses.
    It is very touchscreen friendly. The only issue I can see so far with it is I have a ton of songs so it takes about 20 seconds or so to open up the music section if I come from a differant section. That, and if you want to do a search you have to have a keyboard or remote because there is no OSK.

    you have to put your cursor at the top/bottom of the list and it will automatically scroll down to the other options.

    So do you run it at 1024x768 and have the lilliput downscale?
