Its a great setup description from Robbo, so thanks to him rather than me :-)
I agree, there is a lot of info in the tutorial.
It is reasonably up to date, although there are a few changes since 1.2. Mostly its bug fixes, better coding and a few new features (plus the option to install codecs and a prettier default skin which is handy but I use the StreamedMP skin anyhow)
You may just want to install the basic system first, setup TV, codecs for video, DVD's etc.
Then you can take a look at installing moving pictures (or my films), TV series which are plugins to help organise your media.
Remember, DRMed content is not available so if its important to you then MCE is still your best bet.
Let us know if you have any questions in regards to setup, lots of people are happy to help out.
