The Daily Button – June 25th, 2008

There has been a LOT of Vista Media Center news floating around the web the last few days. Here is my chance to catch you guys up on some of the good stuff. As always, I will take this time to point you guys to our advertisers if you are in the market for HTPC parts, great plugins for your Vista Media Center install or an Extender. – Carries HTPC related stuff such as tuner cards and the HDHomeRun

Big Screen Global – Has 10′ plugins such as Big Screen Weather, Big Screen Photos, Big Screen Contacts& Big Screen Headlines

HP/Microsoft – They are currently holding a series of webinars dedicated to the release of HP’s newest extender.

The build log has screeched to an ugly halt right now. Everything seems to be going a bit haywire, as such, I am going to spend the next few days carefully reinstalling WHS and VMC from scratch and get back to my Avermedia Bravo review and building my digital library :).
