HTPC are just much better. I am trying to get everything in one box, and HTPC is the way to go. My wife likes watching her TV Shows on Hulu, and at times watches some stuff on Netflix, and other times she watches a movie on the Dune. So, rather than having her and the kids using her laptop for Hulu, the PS3 for Netflix and the Dune for all of our ripped movies, I am trying to make one HTPC that can do all that.
I love my Dunes, but it is time to move on. The Dune Smart Series are outrageously priced, and even Dune has started to build a HTPC with XBMC support
So, I will be selling my Dune TV303D, and building an HTPC. If everything goes well, I will be selling my Dune D1 next to build another HTPC. One for the living room and another for the bedroom.
Even their scraper is better than Zappiti, Yadis, and YAMJ combined. I scrapped all of my movies with 100% accuracy. So, far my testing with my Win 7 PC has been pretty good. I had a minor stuttering issue, which I can't replicate again. Now, I'm must continue converting my folder structure movies to MKV with MKVMerge...approximately 75 left to do.
