Does anyone know of software like windows media center for xp, i want to have a menu on my TV so i can choose to play video without having to screw my eyes looking at explorer on the TV.


Cheers.

There's also MyHTPC (Windows based)

And MythTV, which runs on Linux

I got a MedaiMVP the other day and this is a sweet device. Works well with GBPVR. Not sure if anyother software PVR's available for this yet.

Cheers guys, I had heard mythTV is good, but not sure I could put up with rebooting into linux every time.

Mide you the only thing stopping me making a complete move to Linux is I can't get my Sagem USB modem to work. (but thats for another forum, another day)

Another is TVedia - window based( http://www.8dim.com/products ). It seems to be similar to MyHTPC but I have not install it yet to confirm. Maybe if someone who has installed all the mentioned software would like to give a comparison.

An "A la Windows Media Center" interface is also integrated into zoomplayer 4.0 (there is a special release with it). That is an other reason to use this great player.
