I set up my LinuxMCE system a few days ago to test it out, and have finally gotten around to putting it in my media center rack. After discovering that there was not enough room to just add my system I realized that I could remove my old DVD player since my new system has a DVD burner in it. Normally this would not be a problem except for the fact that this DVD player has a built in TVGuardian ability that LinuxMCE does not. But all hope is not lost because my VCR also has the TVGuardian feature. I would like to know if LinuxMCE outputs close captions or not, and if the signal would still be detected if it was converted from S-video to composite cable in order to be routed through the VCR?
I would also like to know if there is an add on program that could do the job of a TVGuardian before it even leaves the system in order to simplify the process of makeing a family friendly media center.
PS. Thanks to all of the developers for making it possible for Linux novices to install and set up this system
