There is one area I'm concernced about, and that is picture quality. Out the box, MCE blacks don't look good and the color does not appear to be as rich.

If the blacks look more like dark grey it could be related to your video card's dynamic range. With my nvidia card I need to use full dynamic range (0-255) for dark blacks and richer colors. Check your video card's graphic settings and make certain its not set to limited dynamic range (16-255).

Thanks for that. I searched Anand and found some articles on HTPC's and they had discovered a bug that had that setting you mentioned swapped on ATI's Vision Center settings. I'll check that when I go home tonight.
