I am so dissapointed in MCE 2005. The video card requirements are crazy, I have a Radeon 8500 feeding a HD TV and it works just great.
I refuse to buy a $200 + video card just to use MCE.

The ATI website lists "special MCE drivers", only for the Radeon 9200, 9600, 9700 & 9800, for download.

I remember some warning on the ATI site about them not including a WDM driver or something, but I'm at a loss.

I'm having a little trouble understanding what (if any) advantages exist with MCE at this time. It appears that many applications and much existing hardware have issues that are not present in XP Pro.
Are there any clear advantages with MCE?

... But if you are using TIVO or another standalone PVR, don't throw it out for MCE. MCE is just not reliable enough and it has a number of issues with controlling cable/sat equipment, HDTV is only OTA, most markets are scrambling HD feeds of HBO, SHO etc., which prevents MCE from recording those...
