I think I’m finally catching up with the rest of the geek world… I’ve been running Windows XP on my media center (not media center, 32 bit edition on a 64 bit system… yeah, I know) because I already owned theÂ licenseÂ and I didn’t know if I’d really stick with the concept. Â However, we’re using it more and more and we’d like to add functionality. Â So tomorrow night I should be installing Windows 7 Professional. Â That’s step one.
The next goal is getting a Ceton InfiniTV 4 tuner card and dumping TiVo. Â I still love the TiVo interface, but getting 4 cable streams right to my media center is too good to pass up. Â Plus I’ll be able to share all the content to the xbox in the bedroom.
I already know Windows 7 will be fine, but the Ceton thing is a little scary. Â They haven’t been around too long and I’m not always an early adopter on computer hardware (I’ve been playing this game too long, I want my home systems to be stable). Â So since there isn’t a ton of content out there about the Ceton device, I’ll update with my experience.
For the record, I’ll be using Time Warner and replacing a TiVo HD with the Ceton/Win7.
