This is a awful app. I got this in a bundle from MacHeist along with several other apps I really have no use for. It only lets you install on one Mac. If you want to install on another Mac you have to take your password off the one you are presently using. Since most of my library is in my iMac and I used my MacBook Air to install this software,I took it off the Macbook Air and transferred the Registration to my iMac. Well the registration says it is wrong and I tried to go back and put in the registration to My MacBook Air and it says it is the wrong password. Now I have to wait until they open up on Monday.(it is Saturday)The whole app is wrong.I don't like the GUI .The arrangement is poor. XBMC is better as well as Plex. I really don't know why they don't let you put the darn thing on all the Macs you own. This is a real loser!

I did go back to their web site to send 3 messages to them.They each time gave me a phone number to call. Each time I called they kept me waiting a half hour and then disconnected me.This is a RIPOFF.

Expected more from Equinux!!!
Got this in a bundle. Glad I didn't pay!!!
No sorting, search, random or repeat. Completely a mess.
Background music continues after you've chosen media to play.

Unfortunately it is not possible to give less stars! But I guess that that they stopped to develop this application anyway.

"Stutters along", "Has a few bugs"? What's this software like 9 years old? Its still "got a few bugs"? And they're charging for this?

Ditch this junk and go with Plex...its free and does EVERYTHING flawlessly, NO BUGS!

Even with 4 GB of RAM this software is sluggish & bloated. Froze up several times. Features nice, bloat not.

I'm surprised this thing is still out there...is anyone buying it?
Equinox has SO dropped the ball with it's US support. They rarely respond to emails (if ever, wrote 2...nothing), and if they do they give the standard install/replace app...I'm a seasoned Mac user, I know how to install software and I know when that software is running poorly!
Their software may very well be running fine in Europe (I'm assuming so because I think that most of its bad marks are coming from the US), but if they're going to continue snubbing the US market as they have, simply pull your lousy software.

BTW, The Tube seems to be getting very bad ratings, and that seems to be coming from everywhere.

I'm VERY happy with Front Row and EyeTV anyway!

DANGER!!!!!!!!
Beware of upgrading this APP! I had just installed the update when I started to notice some apps acting odd.

After some detective work, I found most of my ~/Library in Trash/MediaCentral inside of the application package.

Unfort I had started a delete on the trash, so a good deal of my library is now gone.

If you bother with this, keep a VERY close eye on what the installer does and DON'T trash ANYTHING until you have examined the package.

There are two things that are holding me back from getting this app.

I should say that the look, functionality, and ability to customize are just great!

The 2 things are:

1. The lack of being able to adjust the amount of seconds/minutes it jumps to when you rewind/FF. It jumps forward like 3 minutes...I would want it to FF like 30 seconds, or better yet just scrub through quickly 1 second at a time.

and

2. Any video content that I play, QT, avi, DIVX, stutters every few seconds. Unacceptable.
This may be due to the size of the monitor (30"), but I don't see that entering into the equation here...video NEVER stutters under any other apps, so, a bit puzzled.

Any ideas?

Thank you.

Is this thing still wiping hard disks? The developer never did acknowledge the issue officially, so I wonder if he ever fixed it? If you run MediaCentral from a folder inside your Applications folder, BEWARE!

is there any way to make this thing rewind/fast forward say a minute or two instead of like 8 or 9 minutes?

Also, having a bit of trouble making it recognize my ATI Remote Wonder...is there a profile out there?
