HTPC (Home Theater PC)

I decieded that SageTV was a wash- I was very close to purchasing the software, but I realized what it is lacking once I took it out of the Vista environment:
  • Codecs; primaily XviD
  • Thumbnails
  • Orginization of video files (and most likey audio/images)

The later was the big stumble for me- I have three shares on my file server (Movies, Videos and xxx) and this program dumped them all into one big direcory- so my Egypt documentaries were right along side 12 Monkeys...

The BEST codec pack I have found is FFDShow; the only thing it seems to be lacking so far are MOV (QuickTime) and .TS (HD MPEG2) support (The later may just need to be associated with Media Center).
