I fairly understood you up to this point:

But the last line has got me scratching my head.
I'll give you that MCE is more popular but the htpc podcasts must have mentioned GBPVR at least a little.
Anyhow, back to the article. The fact that the author did not mention alternatives (that I can clearly find or recall) aggravates me with the assertion that the HTTPC is only the domain of Microsoft. This is strikingly absurd.
Furthermore he simply has glossed over the fact that the issue of DRM is what is preventing this segment from developing.
I also disagree that newer forms of DRM with the new schemes will resolve the issue.
As long as there is restriction on what when and where we obtain our media and where we wish to view it and there are proprietary methods for verification of the right to use (IE purchased or paid for with a monthly cable bill) we will never see HTTPC achieve their potential market penetration.
Please send me a message and perhaps I can help you troubleshoot your HDMI issues. I've got several little ion boxes working fine in this configuration running, yes, mythtv.
