    I have an ATI X800 video card and cannot get media center to use it, does
    anyone have any links that shows supported video cards and tv tuner cards.

    Are you saying that you cannot play a DVD with Media Center in your
    computer?
    What MCE Compatible DVD Decoder do you have installed and set to the
    preferred Decoder. I ask this as an X800 card certainly meets the
    requirements of MCE (128MB and onboard DX9 support).
    Tuner cards, however, are another story, If your tuner card is not a DVB-T
    card with BDA driver or does not have a MCE specific driver available for
    it then it won't work in MCE.

    Your actual OS is based on XP Pro 2002

  5. There are several different version numbers...the My Computer Properties
    shows you the version of the underlying OS, which is XP Pro from 2002. The
    way to find the Media Center version is from within the Media Center program
    itself (I believe it's the bottom option on the Settings menu)...that should
    say 2005.
