ShowShifter
Version 2 has just been released. This is a great “home media center” product which combined TV, Video, DVD, CD, MP3 and Photo viewer in one TV-readable, IR remote navigable interface. I have used v1.7 since May and had numerous problems with multiple DVD codecs (causing SS to crash) and TV recording causing a reboot after ~10mins. Luckily v2.0 fixes the first problem and the second is probably due to a) ATi drivers/board b) the crap AOpen motherboard, or c) the tiny case with absolutely no ventilation. For me, it’s well worth the $9.99 upgrade price.
