    I have had a similar experience. After using MCE2005 for about 4 years, my media PC blew it's nvidia card. The only spare parts I could find were older AGP cards that didn't fit the newer slot and was forced to use the onboard video. For some reason unclear at the present, Media Center would run as normal with the onboard video but would not play video despite Media Player handling it just fine. It was at this point that I decided to hunt up MediaPortal, which I had tried back in it's infancy and at that time I was not impressed. How this program has changed-- I am glad my nvidia took a dive so I could discover that this free program has surpassed the professional one I have been using! After a few set up issues, mainly to do with my Phillips brand media center remote, I now have a better running, even more polished program than the microsoft one. And I love the feature that marks videos after they have been viewed-- for someone like myself who entire television series, often congruently, this is a life saver.


    (If anyone has a similar remote and can't get the windows (green) button to launch mediaportal, check out the program Intelliremote. I tried about six other programs before finding one that worked with all the green button on this remote).
