X-Box and Vista Premium vs. Med. Center 05

Hello and thanks in advance for your time. I found this stie by search and though my "problem" does not yet exist, I want some expert experienced advice and hope you can offer same, or tell me if it is not un your purvue. I am a 47 yo. new father without great funds but who loves qualilty audio and vido - have setup an awesome theater in our living room consisting of a Pani ae900u projector, 100" screen, and excellent (reasonable cost) video switching receiver and surroung speakers. Have read and heard that X-Box (besides gaming which for me will be good as my child grows) is a great interface that will allow me to show pics and video and play music over my network (hard wired) so that I can avoid having to burn DVD's or setup a computer in our living room. Do not plan to download to X-Box hard-drive, just use the "extender" I belive it is called. Since all my PC's are standard XP, I was planning to get a Media Center 05 and about to purchase a refurbished one but much easier to find a great deal with Vista Premium than Media 05. PROBLEM: I read a few months ago that Vista was a CRIPPLED VERSION of Media 05 and may not even work at all much less as well as 05 with X-Box. Is this true or can I rely on the Vista Premium for my needs?? Thanks, Peter

Unless there are aspects of Media Center itself which you require, Windows Media Player can easily be used as the source, or Windows Media Connect.

Hp lj 4 plus accepts print job but does not print Vista Home Premium

Hello charles lewis,

Welcome, and thank you for using FixYa!

To answer your question: What you are experiencing is a driver type miss-match. The printer cannot understand the driver language that Vista is providing. Even though it is labeled as HP LaserJet 4 Plus.

I recommend trying the plain HP LaserJet 4 drivers or Lexmark Optra drivers. They may speak the language the printer likes, through Vista. If that does not work; it is time to purchase or use a newer printer.

Have a great day!

Vista RAM usage ?

The minimum recommended ram for Vista is 1 GB, generally accepted practical minimum is 2 GB. A 1 GB system will be kinda laggy. Maximum RAM for 32 bit Vista is 4 GB.

Vista Home Premium is roughly equivalent to Windows XP Media Center Edition (Has Media Center, cann't be put on a DOMAIN type network)

Vista Business is roughly equivalent to Windows XP Professional (Can Join a Domain, Doesn't have Media Center)

Vista Ultimate has all available freatures of Vista, you can do any windows function with Ultimate

Media Center file types

Yes, file extensions, .gif, .bitmap, .jpg are case sensitive. Just like if you tried to save a word document as .DOC then the file would look like test.DOC.doc. Change case and it will be fine.
