One alternative to the Windows Media Centre when building an HTPC is to go with a flavour of Linux and MythTV. The set up may be a little daunting to those who have never used or installed Linux, but the rewards are worth the time invested. MythTV does have an Achilles Heel, which is its inability to deal with streaming video from the net. Many have tried to integrate that capability into the program, with mixed results.
