    Since you can only get Media Center by purchasing a Media Center PC, you don't need to worry about hardware compatability. ;)



    OMG...
    Unless you're a pirate! :eek:



    lol

    That's not the only way to get it - don't make assumptions of piracy if you don't know what you're talking about. :rolleyes:

    Back on topic:

    AIW cards work fine with MC, not sure of other cards.

    I personally use the PVR-250 with my MCE box. It is a great, hardware based TV tuner. My only regret was not waiting for the PVR-250 MCE Edition that is now floating around the web. I would love to have an FM tuner in my MCE box as well.

    As for getting a copy of MCE, there are other legit ways of getting it. I, for example, have an uncle that is an MSDN member. I asked him for a copy to play with and he was gracious enough to oblige my curiosity.
