Performance

 

Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005

Attractive, easy-to-navigate interface; HDTV and dual-tuner support; works with set-top and mobile devices.

TV still looks second-rate on large screens.

Media Center Edition 2005 is the best desktop DVR app out there, but it's not yet ready to play hub for your digital home.

Great Reception

 

Remote seems to be fairly sturdy.

Sometimes the Power On/Off button will activate my XBox 360 in addition to the computer.

Stable OS

 

I've installed Windows XP alot over the years on many builds and computers at work.

Wish Microsoft would release a Service Pack 3 already.
