    Since I already have Win XP MCE 2005, but hate it because of it´s flaws. Mainly because It does not support DVB-C or DVB-S and does not support coded channels. Is it possible for me to install Mediaportal on XP MCE 2005 and use this instead of Media Center and get DVB-C and coded channels to work?



    And if this works how do I make Mediaportal take over MCE completely?

    MP runs on mce and disables it at startup. Scrambled DVB-C works with supported cards and cam.

    I also run MP on MCE 2005, I have disabled the MCE services to prevent them from taking up memory

    yes its possible

    and you would just tell mce to not start up when the computer comes on and tell mp to start up when the computer comes on.
