    XBox 360 or PS3?

    I've had a few issues with Windows 7 and using media center with my 360. Unless your trying to use full media center features i'd recommend just setting up a homegroup in windows 7/media player, share the media you want to your 360 that way and skip the media center entirely since you can then...

    360 Game List Suggestion

    It was, it's just a shame the devs couldn't have expanded their color pallet past various shades of brown, it did have a more compelling story then any of the more childish recent releases. Though I am still amazed at how much I enjoyed Eternal Sonata even though I felt the game was talking...

    Mass Effect 2 on PC and 360 1Q2010

    Asus agrhhhhhhh.

    Windows users are confused - did Mojave help?

    Microsoft really shot themselves in the foot with that ad series...I mean it was entirely designed to try and prove that people just heard bad things about Vista and if they saw for themselves how it ran they would buy it...

    Rogers@home with linksys

    I thought rogers@home is cable internet. Meaning you wouldn't be using any osrt of PPOE, you'd just set the router up to grab it's info via dhcp and set everything up like normal

    dvd player

    Well if you in it for the "modding" aspect I'd personally stay away from name brands and get a Mintek. You can make most Mintek's region free. they play VCD,SVCD out of the box, their jpg playback is the BEST i've ever seen. My mintek 1600 has better quality then most expensive players...
