Default MCE 2004 vs MCE 2005

I am currently running Windows Media Center 2004 (I guess it's 2004, the version before 2005.) and wanted to know if any of you have tried 2005. I want to know if it is worth it to upgrade.

Thanks!

i remember reading that they added

remote admin capabilities to manage schedule and recordings from outside your home

and the showcase feature which adds MTV Overdrive, Comedy Central, VH1, etc online content.

I can't give you a personal opinion on the matter because I quite frankly don't own a Media Center PC. However, the information that I have read indicates that you should check with your PC's vendor to ensure that an upgrade to 2005 is even possible.
