Slashdot | Roadkill on the Convergence Highway Media Center gets Slashdotted. “The picture still was no where close to a vintage Tivo. But it does keep track of the programs, important with a terabyte of disc.” Ouch.
Picture quality is so super important. I would agree with the observation that the television picture quality on a Media Center PC has never approached that of even an entry level non HD TiVo. This is the single biggest obstacle in the way of Media Center acceptance. We must get a better picture — preferably CableCARD or Satellite or IPTV HDTV. I’m hoping we see this improve in Vista.
