Hello all,

I'm wondering what software everyone is using in their HTPC, DVD player, Video Player, Music, what do you find works best and has the best display for a HTPC system..

So if you could share your experiences it would be great, thanks.

Currently I'm using myHTPC, but I'm having a few problems w/ the Remote Wonder integration.

I use theatertek. Posted a review here a few months back.

I don't use any of the commercial "remote" solutions- just bought an IR keyboard, taught the keys to pronto, and have had zero problems.

I love my remote wonder.. simply because it's RF.. my HTPC is located in the 'equipment' room.. so I don't have the noise from the PC.. if I went to an IR solution I would have to run a lead with a receiver..

As far as myHTPC I give this program Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image it works excellent.. I got my local IPG up and running along side with local weather, music, etc. the features seem to be endless, navigation is simple, and the display is excellent. It's really a great htpc program solution.. definatly worth a look IMO.. http://www.myhtpc.net
