Introducing Andres

Hello MissingRemote readers.  I just recently answered the call to help out the team here and as a new contributor to the site I wanted to introduce myself before I started posting.

My name is Andres and I am an HTPC addict.  I have been playing with HTPC’s for a few years and finally took the plunge at the beginning of this year.  I now have a Dell XPS 420 running as my Vista Media Center with three extenders around my house.

The past seven months have been an adventure and real life classroom in networking, codecs, plugins, utilities, registries, drm, cable card and of course WAF.  I have been posting about everything that I have been through over on my blog at My Network Project and now I hope to bring some of that information and experience to  MissingRemote.

I am a huge fan of Media Center and I like to evangalize what I see as the benefits of this setup.  But I am also a realist and I know that this is not for everyone.  In all my posts I try to get down and present the real world of having media center in your life so that those that are thinking about making the switch know what they are getting into.

I look forward to contributing to the MissingRemote and starting a great dialog with all readers of all experience levels so that we can all learn from each other.
