Thanks for the info. Most of these are less applicable once you already have an MCE system up and running (i.e. tuner card, remote, etc.) but Sage definitely has some advantages. I

f this rumoured "analog hole" HD tuner card comes out and is only supported by Sage then I will switch in a second. Right now I don't mind the V1 MCE extenders since they are cheap (<$100 on eBay) and the fact that they don't support HD is not a big deal since there is so little decent HD that I am able to PVR (only OTA).
