Meedio Essentials Review at Anandtech

Anandtech.com has a two part review of Meedio Essentials, which was created by the authors of the MyHTPC freeware software. Meedio Essentials allows you to play videos, view images, and listen to music that is stored on your PC. It sounds like it also has a good plug-in architecture and is skin-able so that it can be customized and extended.

Unfortunately, it currently doesn't have the ability to watch or record television so for my personal use, it is rather limited. If I'm going to hook up a computer in my living room, I'd want it to support all my needs and the biggest use for me is the Tivo-like recording functions.

They are currently working on PVR support so I'll keep an eye on them and check it out when it has been added.

UPDATE: Part 2 is up at Anandtech.com
