    I was in the market for a new sound/tuner/amp unit that has Dolby 5.1, at
    least, and was looking over the available stuff in the stores.

    I noticed that several units had the windows logo on the front with a line
    that said Windows Media Enabled. I have no interest in a piece of
    hardware that Microsoft has had a hand in, since I don't need them to ok
    what I play - or for that matter, a unit that needs to be rebooted between
    songs or movies:)

    Anybody know what the brand indicates?

    Perhaps they mean the player can handle/decode Windows Media files like WMA
    & WMV?

    Don't know yet. The sales folks didn't know what I was talking about till
    I pointed it out. Actually, they still don't know. These are just
    receiver consoles, with tuner and amp and various selector buttons for
    connected equipment. Would think that they still just amplify what is
    inputted, not make decoding decisions bases on a data stream.

    Still researching.
