What is the program for?

If the mcupdate_scheduled task is not for EPG, what is it for? Can I disable it from waking my PC and still get my EPG updated? Thanks!

Guess what? By using a different HDMI port from the same TV, the laptop detects 1360x768 and uses it. And image is a lot sharper. Apparently, the HDMI ports on the TV are not created equal.

I haven't and most likely won't invest on a cleaning disc. I figure if I have to go that route, I might as well open the drive again and rub the laser head with a lens cloth.

The specs aren't bad at all. In fact, it is better than the HTPC I'm using.
Maybe ask around your friends and family and see who need an HTPC? Admit it, you will enjoy building one.

Is the Wi-Fi adapter on the 230 removable? I see seller on eBay selling used 230 but states there is no Wi-Fi. I guess maybe the seller took the Wi-Fi adapter out for resale?
