    I am putting together my first HTPC and it will be hooked up to the internet (through a router). I was wondering if your antivirus software causes you any problems with DVD playback or time shifting TV? If so, what solutions do you use to get around this?

    the only times I have ever had any problems with a virual program is when it starts up it's automatic hardrive scan. The easiest way to get around this is to either set the time that it does the auto scan to early morning like 4am or to just turn off the auto-scan altogether.
