My Media Browser Setup:











There is a little stutter in the video. It doesn't do that I think it might be Fraps. Media Browser is a great plug-in for Vista and Windows 7 Media Center. So great I don't even use Media Center any more. I'm kinda new to it, so it's still a work in progress.

Nice setup. Man that's a beefy HTPC!! You could definnatley game on that PC.

As far as a tuner card slap in a Hauppage HVR-2250.

Here is an update of my Media Browser plugin. I made a matching Media Center & Media Browser theme. I added a Clear Spine Clear Case overlay and rounded all folder images. It's a work in progress, but it's coming along. If anyone wants any of the stuff I used to make this or the theme let me know and I will post it.

I don't what software you're talking about. So here is all of it. Windows 7MC, a plugin for VMC/7MC called Media Browser (This is the pics^). For the graphic design & clear spins I use Photoshop CS4, and for the theme making I use Media Center Studio. I save all my work if you have to stuff to do it I'll post it if you want it.

You call that an htpc? That's a rather high-end gaming rig.
