It took me a couple of days, but I've finally read through this entire post. It has certainly been a wealth of information, inspiration, and trepidation. After my DIY HTPC died, I bit the bullet and ordered a Grand Theater and I've got some questions for the sages here.
I've noticed that most of the posts refer to pre-SP1 VMs. Does anyone have any experience with post-SP1 VMs? I'm hoping that most of the update issues have gone away with SP1 pre-installed and all the ATI drivers up to date.
I also noticed that there were a couple of posters in the Seattle area who've had multiple issues getting things installed. Are there any recent experiences with Comcast in this area? I'm hoping that everyone has gotten their act at least somewhat together by now, but I'm not holding my breath.
Finally - I've cobbled together a series of questions and "things to know" for whenever I call Comcast, but does anyone have specific suggestions/hints/tips/bribes amounts to offer?
Thanks to all the posters who've provided such a great source of info!
