I plan to dedicate a PC as a media center pc in the next few days. I have used MCE2005 before without too many issues but it has been awhile - the PC died and I didnt have a spare to dedicate at the time. Its an Athlon 2000, 1G RAM, 256M ATi card, Abit Mobo. My question. I intend to watch mostly ripped DVD's (PAL and NTSC) which is pretty straight forward with MyMovies2. However, I intend to watch divx, avi and some HD as well if possible. What codec installation would leave me with the least amount of issues in MCE2005? I was thinking k-lite and/or the nvidia pure video decoders. I dont know if they play well together. Also, should I stick to the default media player in MCE or use TheatreTek - which I found to be a pain in the ass, but if its a dramatically better picture then i could deal with it. I will be using AnyDVD as well if thats any concern. Thanks for any assistance. I just want to add the correct codecs so I dont have alot of trial and error time.
