Anybody who actually still uses Windows Media Center might consider MediaPortal a viable alternative. Sadly, you will spend more time configuring MP than using it. Cheesey default wallpapers, a Whack-A-Mole dropdown menu system, no hint that you need a scrollwheel to use the menus, it will probably need to patch your system to work, and in the end it's REALLY SLOW. Please, developers, go back to the drawing board. There are so many other good, free, fast, media players you can use.
While open source it has a paid for "better than paid for" feel and use. The interface isn't tough to use but may take some reading to get used to using plugins, etc... It loads everything flawlessly and looks great.
This will be a great addition to my PC I use for media purposes, tv, dvd, things of that nature and will remain a permanent software on that computer.
Great work on this.
