MythTV vs XP Media CenterLocked
I have what I need. I just received all of my hardware for building my new media center. I have tested previously with MythTV and XP Media Center. I will not use Vista Ultimate due to it prompting me for a license when trying to view my daughters piano recital. I don’t want to run into that again on my media center.
Alas, I am at a stand still deciding which to use. Do I use MythTV with all of its glorious flexibility. The only problem I had was with my remote. I did finally get it working and have documented the steps so it should be easy to repeat. The response is lacking though, but I found a patch for it, not sure how different it will be. Has anyone used a MCE 2005 remote on Myth. mceusb2 is the module.
The setup for XP Media Center was painless, but I feel there are too many restrictions on DVDs. I did not get to test it much, so I am trying to gather others opinions. If you have used both, which do you like better and why? If you have only used one, tell me why you like it and what you don’t like.
Please, no flaming of Linux or MS and please don’t make up fictitious reasons to like the other if you have not used it. Opinions should be based on fact, not what your brothers sisters friend heard on a forum from a guy on another planet 6 years ago.
