I just noticed a couple of new post on the Media Center Sandbox blog that describe some useful modifications that can be made to this project template in order to create different types of Windows Vista Media Center applications:

Aaron, is this still necessary with the v5.3 SDK, or have these subtleties all been rolled into the SDK as well?

In addition, the issue that I described at http://blogs.msdn.com/astebner/archive/2007/09/06/4798334.aspx has been fixed in the 5.3 version of the SDK.
