So MyHD is a great app unless you want to use it with a Media Center PC. Looks like I get to figure out how to have Girder disable MyHD when using MCE. Thats too bad. My ati all in wonder worked great next to the MyHD card. I guess its all in the drivers.
Final word. If you have a Media center PC DONT BUY the MYHD CARD.
One thing to consider is that Media Center Edition is going to be the de facto standard in the PC \\ HT convergence. It is unfortunate that a driver problem is keeping the MyHD card from being a part of that process. Not for MyHD to be a plugin to MCE, but just to be able to use the MyHD software \\ Hardware on the same MCE PC.
I sense there is no desire from the MYhd group to even consider making their drivers compatible with the XP MCE OS.
Would it not make sense for the MyHD developers to make the drivers at least compatible as a seperate application, with MCE?
Or maybe it is simply impossible to write compatible drivers.
â€Or maybe it is simply impossible to write compatible drivers.â€
Or maybe MS already has a HDTV â€œpartnerâ€ for MCE.
I was contacted by a MS employee about porting MyHD MDP120 over to BDA so it would function in MCE and when I requested a contact inside the MCE working group so MIT could get the necessary guidance it was never provided.
Sorry for making this forum a venting source. I just had high hopes of running both cards side by side. Now that I know I cannot, I have to make a decision on one or the other. Of course MyHD will prevail.
My Hauppage card is another door stop.
I think I will make another PC that does nothing but house all of my left over video cards.
