Report MCE guide problems
Everyone once and a while I get an email about a problem with Media Center's guide information.
Recently I found out about this site, Windows XP Media Center Edition Electronic Program Guide Issue Submission Form where you can report guide errors or mistakes.
There is also a UK version.

Joe Wilcox, Jupiter Analyst and author of Microsoft Monitor, The Media Center TV/DVR Question: I found that Dell makes Media Center a pretty irresistible option on Dimension 4700 and 8400 PCs. Dell charges an extra $38 for the software.
[cut] I've pitted a dual-tuner Comcast digital cable box against a Windows XP Media Center PC. For DVR reliability, the Media Center PC wins.
We agonized over loosening the tuner requirements but I think we made the right decision.
I know that at my apartment the majority of content I consume on my 46" TV through Media Center does not come through a tuner.
I also have a good friend who on every ski/bike vacation we go on shots gigs and gigs of photos.
After each day of skiing/biking we review the photos on his notebook but if he had a MCE laptop the experience would be greatly enhanced if he could hook it up to the TV in the hotel room (if only Dell/Toshiba made it easy to upgrade to MCE after buying a non-MCE notebook).

Broadcast flag overturned
Reuters, US appeals court tosses FCC's broadcast flag rule: A U.S. appeals court on Friday struck down a Federal Communications Commission rule designed to limit people from sending copies of digital television programs over the Internet.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia said the FCC had "exceeded the scope of its delegated authority" with the 2003 rule, which would have required TV set manufacturers to start using new technology by July 1. !
