Some skipping action

The past few months of Media Center XP has been fairly uneventful, thus the lack of commentary.

Just a brief note about skipping during playback.  It is common for hard drives containing recorded television programs to become badly fragmented.  I think this happens on our computer because we tend to record so many programs, yet only watch a few.

Also, television program files are quite large (haven’t been brave enough to start compressing them yet) which makes defrag difficult.

Nevertheless, it’s necessary to run defrag frequently.  I recommend that you delete all unnecessary tv programs beforehand, as we do.
