We see, in our repair shops, significantly more problems, sometimes unresolvable, with high end computers running Windows Media Center Edition - both Windows XP and VISTA. Doesn't seem to matter whether high end Sony, HP, or Dell... All under warranty, we have sent four HP's back to Irving Texas. Same with Sony and Dell. Is this simply our imagination, or do others on this forum have difficult troubles with systems installed with Media Center Edition? The list of difficulties is a long one... but usually amounts to a computer that quits suddenly and forever. Haven't found many references to the problems on this forum, so perhaps it is our imaginations.
