For an AIW, no, there is no good freeware alternative. "myhtpc" was good
and free, but it is now called "meedio" and is no longer free.
If you're going to spend money for something anyway, either ditch the AIW in
favor of something with a standard commercially popular chipset and go to
mythtv under Linux, or just get a copy of Windows Media Center Edition
2005. Those are the two best alternatives. But before you go to MCE, make
sure that you get feedback from someone who is actually doing it to the
effect that the ATI driver really lets you run it on an AIW without a
to email, dial "usenet" and validate
