You can find more info here:

Try to go to /etc/apt/apt.conf.d and see if in these files, 30pluto and 30pluto.pbackup, you have AllowUnauthenticated "true". If you have "false", try to change to "true" and try to reinstall LMCE

The pictures are downloaded from flikr home page every 5 hours and put in /home/flikr/2007/...
You can delete the from /usr/pluto/bin/ and put your own photos in /home/flikr/2007/..., this way your files will not be overwritten.

After 10 minutes, LinuxMCE should start the screen saver.
After another 10 minutes, if you have a TV connected to your computer, it should be switch off. This is only for TV , not for pc monitors.

The only way to select between the core or hybrid is to reinstall LinuxMCE.

try to overwrite xorg.conf.pluto with xorg.conf, this should make LinuxMCE use the official fglrx ati drivers.
you can find xorg.conf in /etc/X11/

Try to set your resolution to 720p. You can't use any other resolution other that those find in the A/V wizard setup.

xine should take your .sub or .srt files if they are in the same directory with the video files, but the name of the .sub file has to be the same as the video file's name.

Unfortunately, in this release, the section of 'picture viewing' is not ready yet. It should be available with the next release.

LinuxMCE is a free, open source add-on to Ubuntu, so you need to install Ubuntu first.
you can download Ubuntu from here:

you can install Ubuntu and still keep your current windows OS

LinuxMCE is the only solution seamlessly combining:
   1. media & entertainment with a server for music, movies and tv shows, plus a PVR and DVD Player,
   2. a home automation system to control everything in the home with touch-screen tablet and Bluetooth mobile phone controllers,
   3. a phone system with video conferencing,
   4. a security system that feeds you live video on your mobile phone when something happens, and lets you speak to visitors through your stereos, and
   5. a home PC solution.

i think it should meet your needs.
