I have recently upgraded my Workstation to 4Gig memory. Hoever, Windows Media
Center 2005 is only seeing/using 3Gigs.
Does anyone know how to fix this or is this a limitation in MCE?

3GB is the limit on memory.

Windows XP supports 4GB of RAM.

I just tried using the /3GB switch and it did not seem to help.
System Properties still reports 3.00 GB of RAM...
I did see some changes in System Information.
"Total Physical Memory" shows I have 4,096.00 MB, but Available Physical
Memory is 2.70 GB. Not really understanding what I am looking at here and
still looking for a resolution.
