Has anyone tried MC edition? Will it work with the TV tuner on the 8890?

for just the tv stuff, it worked perfect on the toshiba. the tuner on the toshiba had an external IR receiver, and an IR signal repeater to stick on the cablebox. You just go through a bit of setup to tell it what cable lineup you have, which cable box you use, then test it a bit, and it downloads updated listings whenever you turn on the pc. The one thing I noticed in my few brief uses of it was that it recorded automatically, as soon as you started watching tv. Which meant I had to stop recording whenever I used it, cause I didn't want that crap filling up my laptop hard drive.
