I just installed Vista, and it fixed my immediate problem. Problems, YES! I would have LOVED for them to give me more of an upgrade guide. My system is STILL not fully-functional (3 of my 5 hard drives not working) but my XP MCE 05 wouldn't work completely after an upgrade. I like the new Vista Media Center interface, but video playback is sometimes choppy, which is UNACCEPTABLE, considering it was fine on XP. More options on what is shown during playback would have been better.
