Windows Media Centre- worth getting Vista Premium for?
I'm putting a new system together and can get a copy of Windows Vista Home Basic very inexpensively. But I also see that the Windows Vista Home Premium version has Windows Windows Media Centre in it.
Is Windows Media Centre worth bothering with, or is it just repeating a lot of functionality you have from other software.
For the system, I am putting in the LG Blu-Ray/HD-DVD player and am going to get a TV Tuner PVR card. What I want to do is to be able to record TV shows for playback later and play Blu-Ray/HD-DVD movies. Is there a benefit to Windows media player beyond the software with the tuner card, the Blu-Ray/HD-DVD player?
Before I get comments to just use XP, I run it now and know the comments about Vista, but am going to give it a try anyway.
