I have a domain at home… I have a new computer that would be perfect as a Media Center Edition… well it will be as soon as I get a Hauppauge card, that is.  I obviously live in the technology store wasteland of the Central Valley of California [aka no Frys in a nearby radius] as I had to order the card from NewEgg.  Remember that while it officially can’t join a domain …it can.

Card should arrive in a day or so… I’m planning to fully migrate over to that one next weekend… I’ll let you know how it goes.

Oh and pssst.. I don’t want extenders… I don’t play games.  I just want a Tivo/home media like device hanging of my domain.  I want the glue.  I want it firmly in the active directory where I can control it…. I mean why wouldn’t you when you are a control freak like I am?  🙂

    Also remember, that media center extenders don’t work if you DO join it to a domain. The best thing to do is keep it out of the domain, and use pass through credentials to the domain machine. You can then create a logon script to map drives to your server as a different user so you can access all your data.
