I guess the correct answer would be "nothing I can't handle".

Can only speak for myself: Absolutely nothing worked out of the box. I got it installed, fixed most of the things LMCE had done to screw up my system, but I still can't do 1080p properly, and my FlyDVB Trio tuner doesn't work at the moment. When I get some energy back, I will try to get my system up, but I sense hours and hours of tinkering before it will work.
Maybe the next version will be more on the mark :)

LinuxMCE still does require a lot of configuration and work to get things working... unless you buy pre-configured boxes... but then you'll have to configure all the other home automation devices...

At this point I would not (and don't) recommend LinuxMCE to the average user. I think it will get there, but it's just not there yet.

If you are willing to work at it, then LinuxMCE is an awesome system, though. And as someone else on the forum pointed out, that's part of it's appeal to some of us. He was joking when he said it, but it's true...
