    Two questions:

    1) When I was looking at the SDK I noticed that the only way to make custom content is via html and activex.  Are there any plans to make .NET the prefered development framework?

    2) Will there be any support to write filters to intercept something like the raw tv signal while it is recording?  That way people could write plugins that can remove commercials in real time while recording.

    I live in the UK and here we have a national funded broadcaster called the BBC. They have been around for quite a bit of time and have a huge archive of media, recently they [BBC] said they were going to put all of their archive on the internet, via a propriety viewer.

    I would like to know if it would be possible for the BBC to connect into media center with all of their own DRM and streaming style (bittorrent style), would that work with MCE?

    However the BBC archive is only open to UK residents due to its funding status, and so how dependant is MCE on a regional basis i.e. could the BBC lock out those that are not of UK residentcy.
