I don't see the point of a stand-alone player next to the PC. Using Kodi and MPC-HC as external player works great (AnyDVD is also required). Loading time is much faster, compared to stand-alone and...

Afaik the Media Center support software only works on Win7 (the driver works on 8/8.1, but you need more than just that). Thus it' s probally better, if you use Win7 instead.
