    I dumped about 1000 songs into media center the other day and the thing runs like a dog!

    Anyone else have this problem?

    I dumped 11,000 songs into it and it runs rather slow when bringing up the music. The rest runs fine and once it is loaded up it runs fine. My system specs aren't too bad for a carputer though.
    AMD XP 2600+/512MB RAM/120GB hard drive
    Opus 150W/DVD/GPS/7" Lilliput TS/802.11g/Bluetooth
    Installed.

    I have a 1.56ghz cpu and 512mb of memory, and it took like 30 minuts to add all 2500 mp3's.

    I was just talking to shuttle about my XPC cause I'm having trouble with gettin suround sound to work. And once I said MCE2005, they stoped helping me, They asked where I got it and I told them Newegg. And they pretty much stoped helping me from there.

    Anyone with TV Tuner and FM Tuner's with MCE2005? I need to know what TV Tuners and Radio Tuners work with it.

    ohh, to get the DVD function, you need to install an external DVD codec...like PowerDVD.

    from what I hear, the Nvidia DVD Codec is the best to use, which is why I'm downloading it right now.

    I found a way to change things but so far its not working....I need a good resource editor, I have one called Resource Tuner, someone else used it.....and I can't get it to work like he did.

    I have MCE 2005 on my home PVR PC, and I really don't see the extra value of using it in a car. MCE is only interesting irf you are using the PC as a PVR, and how many channels can you receive wireless??? Here in Belgium only 4 channels.

    MCE 2005 is only Windows XP SP2 with an extra software package. If you want MCE for picture viewing and MP3's, then look further becaus there are tons of other similar programs.
