media center linux

Is there a standalone, media center distro of Linux that isn't a liveCD? I am aware of GeexBox, but I am looking for something that competes more with Windows Media Center Edition. If anyone has heard of this, please post the site where you can download it.

knoppmyth which is just MythTV over Knoppix, but you could install Myth on any Distro

There is also the software package Freevo which you could install over any distro.
There is an excellent guide for fedora to use mythtv. It was called Fedoraology for something like that.
