Beginner's Guide to HTPC Software
Each one of these has their pros and cons. If you are using Mac OSX, you don't have many choices beyond Front Row and Plex (below). If you're using Linux, honestly you're probably not reading this guide due to limited options as well--MythTV (below as well). So that leaves Windows users . This is at least 90% of you out there, and most likely what everyone reading this is interested in. Let's take a look at some HTPC software programs and cover some of their pros and cons. By no means is this full in-depth, but should be a good starting point.

Free programs work for me.
I personally use XBMC on my machine at home.. But there I only use it for playback of my downloaded media, so thats all I need.. At my parents place, I set them up with WMC since they also have a TV tuner.. They dont download much of anything so I doubt they ever even use XMBC even though its also set up there.. I was going to set them up with SageTV, but the rents like WMC so I never saw the need.. I like the price of free..
