    Well, it happened. For the first time since I downgraded I'm not happy with XP. I ordered a TV tuner. Drivers are fine, it's just that tablet xp doesn't have any MCE software. Also remote doens't work, it's only Vista compatible. Still this smal l draw back doesn't take me back do Vista.

    Unless these issues are clearly stated, that situation is a lawsuit waiting to happen (for people with the time, effort and money to do so... golddiggers so to speak).

    In all honesty, it's disturbing that the HP which is sold as an 'entertainment notebook' has such issues, but then again I love the design, the remote capability (when it works), and the fact that the TV tuner works better than the dish on my roof while I'm in the basement...

    Huh? He downgraded his OS and HP is responsible?

    My bad. 'Downgraded' was eliminated from my vocabulary when I 'downgraded' my briefly owned VAIO TZ.

    There are probably workarounds for this situation such as the link lavenderpup posted...

    hey, but what if you own both licences? Shouldn't you be allowed to install it wherever you want?

    That is correct I think, but neither Microsoft nor HP are to blame for drawbacks if you choose to install XP on a system that doesn't officially support it.

    It should work with Windows Media Center Edition (MCE) 2005 which is the same as Windows XP Professional plus MCE stuff.
