Does It Work Well With Windows 7 Media Center?

Windows 7 Media Center doesn't support the MKV video file format. There are some hacks and specialized codec packs that can be applied. But to avoid codec hell I simply use VLC player. After some very unhappy experiences, I usually avoid DivX software like the plague.

So, has anyone installed Divx8? Does it integrate seamlessly with Win 7 Media Center? Does it allow 7MC to recognize and play MKV/DivX/Xvid video? Can I install it and never get annoying upgrade notifications?
