As I'm sure some of you are aware - there is a major problem with Windows XP Media Center Edition.
XP MCE's video features significantly interfere with the vast majority of audio applications.
A rather shocking list of audio hardware and software that is not supported by Win.XP MCE can be found here: https://www.sweetwater.com/sweetcare/ts/detail.php?Index=30163

M-Audio's site even states that they will not support this operating system: http://www.m-audio.com/index.php?do=support.faq&ID=24dfdfc72b87a76e44bb230c809fef0c

This is really shocking considering that most computers in stores today are being sold with XP MCE!!!! I can't beleive this isn't a bigger deal in the home recording world.

My question to you is: Do you know of ANY reliable audio soft/hardware that is compatible with XP MCE? The only software that I've heard works well with this OS is Audacity(heh) and Cubase SX. The biggest problem has been finding an external soundcard that is compatible with XP MCE. I just need to track guitar and vocals - and I shouldn't have to downgrade to XP Home just for that.
If any of you are successfully using audio hardware or software with XP MCE - please let me know. I would love to know exactly what you are using.
Thanks for your time!
