Yes. It's called Meedio and you can find it here.

Thank you! I was sincere also. I know you must have been having the "buyers remorse" type thing (just like I was having) whenever we make a big purchase decision... especially since the Dell was an option for you... but... I have no doubt you won't regret your purchase. pssst... we're past the hard part now... time to enjoy the damn things.
Well ok, the credit card bill is still coming (the post office probably can't find a fork lift in the area to drop it off for me)

I've calibrated up the VGA connection as in as much as I've tried. I must admit I'm having a hard time doing it to. Using the Avia disk and playing with the brightness/contrast I find it's too "bright" when I set it to what the disc tests suggest. Also, the VGA connection does not have all the settings available to tweak with. No color etc. other than a couple presets of "Natural, Normal, Blue, Red". I'm currently using the Natural and Brightness is 40 and Contrast is 42.
Davivers! Congrats! Can't wait to see a pic of your handy work.
I have to agree with you on the remote. The thing is a little long... and I don't like the feel of it either. But I do like the blue light that illuminates all the buttons once you press one thing. Also... try just pushing the "menu" button again to exit. I have found that to work.
I've been sick for the last two days and been lying on the couch watching TV. The TV's actually been on for 39 hours straight right now. I must say I've been enjoying it and don't really have anything to complain about... but...
I have noticed that the black or shadowy areas sometimes have a very tough time with detail. I get that "cloudy" or "bloomy" effect. Is this something due to the size of the unit compared to my ol 27" or the feed? I've noticed it a lot more while I am watching divx'd versions of TV shows like CSI:Miami and the like. This is why I think it may be a source/screen size issue. But, I've also noticed the reverse of this when there is a bright point and then darkness all around, like the scene from Finding Nemo where they meet that angler fish. There is some blooming around it as it trys to step down in "light".
It is something that I can live with. I also have noticed it was a lot worse before I started tweaking with the Avis disk. BTW... how do I tweak a connection from my sat. box... by eye?
So... those of you with other pdp's please chime in if this is "normal" and davivers and E39 let me know what you find.
