Here is some of the features that we expect to see in this update, according to the discussion on Geekzone:
1. Get rid of all the registry mods needed for Vista Media Center Editio in New Zealand
2. Tune Freeview DVB-S natively in Media Center Edition
3. Tune Freeview DVB-T natively in Media Center Edition, including our dodgy AAC sound codecs
4. Get the guide over the air, rather than having to use Bladerunner/Reven/ or others
5. Have native muiti tuner support, which is easy to setup
Also is worth noting that New Zealand is one of the only countries in the world using the H.264 standard for their DVB-T HD broadcast. The other country is Norway.
And since this is not going to be tested here you can imagine how well this well end up...
Oh yes. Windows Vista Media Center was never officially supported in New Zealand anyway. So you can stop buying Windows Vista Ultimate and Windows Vista Home Premium.
Go get GB-PVR or Media Portal and run on any cheaper version of Windows instead.
And check our Freeview forum to see how to configure these to run in New Zealand.
