starting from scratch and have always loved the eye candy of media portal, just wondering what I will miss if I dump sage and go with it. I thought the TV portion of media portal had always been suspect compared to sagetv, but it's starting to sound like that is not the case.
Also is there particular hardware I should refrain from? I was looking at the hardware guide in the other thread by renethx. I figure I will be following one of the micro-atx builds pretty closely, but if there is something there I should avoid I guess I better find that out first?
