    I've been playing with Media Center in Win 7 lately and wondered what MUST HAVE plugins people are using? Anythin you can't live without or is very cool?

    Never used it.
    VLC, Playon, and WD-TV Live are my mainstays.

    secondrun.tv, and hulu desktop integrated into media center are nice apps to have. if you have a netflix subscription, the built-in netflix app is awesome. you can now get streaming HD on the PC. Also there is a built-in XM radio app that can be used w/ your XM online subscription; I use that one quite a bit.

    I highly recommend some type of TV tuner if you don't have one already, and some type of DVD ripping software. That really completes the media center experience.


    thegreenbutton.com is the go-to forum for media center related topics.

    www.slysoft.com for dvd software.

    TV Tuner is not a major thing here since have DirectV DVR's in place and OTA reception is not worth the cost of the tuner card
