As a "media center" style app - a la Windows XP media center I suppose - you
could do worse than MythTV http://mythtv.org/. Takes a little effort to set
up and is very TV oriented (as the name implies) but also plays music files,
playlists, photos, videos, DVDs etc. Remote works fine with a bit of tweaking

and I'm looking for something powerful and quiet to replace it...
Another alternative is freevo http://freevo.sourceforge.net/. Not too bad, but
been a while since I used it.
