  4. I would have to say it is *IN*compatible according to the below link. It
    mentions the WinFast *PVR*2000, which is a _different_ card.

    Comparing the pictures of these two boards on the Leadtek website, you
    immediately notice that the "Deluxe" card only has _one_ Conexant chip on
    it, while the PVR2000 has _two_ Conexant chips on it. I presume the
    additional chip is the MPEG-2 Encoder chip, which is _required_ for MCE
    compatibility.

    Also, the Leadtek website specifically advertises the PVR2000 model, and
    *only* the PVR2000 model as Windows XP MCE compatible. From that I derive
    that the Leadtek WinFast TV XP 2000 Deluxe is _not_ MCE compatible.

    Regards,«
