Comment Certifications (Score 1) 472

I'd suggest getting one of the bigger certifications, like a CCNA. My CCNA is lapsed, and has been for a decade now, but I put "former CCNA" on my resume, and it seems to trigger whatever resume-scanning apps the larger corporations are using. I've done IT for some small shops, where it was a matter of knowing someone who knew someone, and some larger shops, where it's a matter of the software triggering on "CCNA" and handing it off to a live person. And once the recruiter comes calling with phone and in-person interview opportunities, it's what you know, not how formal a setting you learned it in.

Comment GB-PVR (Score 1) 536

I've tried A LOT of PVR software over the years, and MythTV (via Mythbuntu) is what I'm currently using. That said, if you're looking for a Windows solution to run under XP, I found GB-PVR to be about an excellent choice. There are a ton of plugins available as well, so I'd say it is at least as full-featured as MythTV. If you insist on running Windows on your PVR, you could do much worse.

*disclaimer* I've not tried Media Center under Windows 7. I did try it under Vista and found it somewhat lacking.
