Interesting to see your setup.

Why do you disable firewall and nvidia drivers? thought the drivers was necessary to exploit your gpu.
What do you use PDVD9 for? BluRay integrated into MP?
Why not use 7-Zip instead of WinRAR?

I have to investigate this refresh rate settings sometime, don't have so much knowledge about it, but i think i'm able to increase display quality by using it right. Does it autodetect, or do you change frequencies manually?

ok. But you can install PDVD9 codec without installing the PDVD9 codec, both MPEG-2 and h.264, check out SAF, and how to "unlock" it.

7-Zip is free, WinRAR is not. I went from WinRAR to 7-Zip myself about a year ago, and i don't look back.

I thought that MediaCenter had to be installed for MP to work properly, or some other features of it was needed. I know you don't need it in XP, but i thought both Vista and Win7 relayed on it...hmm.

    Nice PC-HT....
    Seems great !

    You are using full moon display changer because of 2 screens ?
    I am going to test your cmd batch file.
    Is 23 Hz better than 24Hz for 23.976 fps ?

    Are you using the Yamaha RVX 3800 DAC for decoding Music Audio PCM via HDMI ?
    I am an audiophile too but my Mediaportal works on XP with a dedicate audio card
    Did you notice a great improvement for music in Vista / XP ?

    Thanks Technick for this post

    Have You tried using The "alternate shell" option in vista Group policy to use mediaportal as a shell insead of explorer.
    HTPC boots to welcome screen then mediaportal starts (no desktop ,no explorer) works flawlessly for me.
