Vista Media Center QUESTION
I am building a new home, and thinking about using Media Center for my home
entertainment system: I Know I can use up to 5 extenders.

Here are my questions I hope you can help me:

1. How many Cable Card feeds can I install into the main Media PC?

2. How many different TV Shows can go to different TV's:

3. I assume the Extenders will feed into my AV Recievers for Digital Sound

4. Does anyone know when other Extenders will come on the market?

Any other tips would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

John

Re: Vista Media Center QUESTION
1. you need to purchase a new cable labs certified PC for cable card
use with digital cable tuners. you can't add this functionality to
an existing computer.

2. two cable cards/DCT's + 1 ATSC tuner is the stated limit so 3
live shows

3. I get full 5.1 sound with my 360 extender when the tv show is
broadcast in 5.1

4. yes

5. no - probably for XMAS 2007
