Synopsis

Absolute Beginner?s Guide to Windows XP Media Center teaches the reader all about the technology that Microsoft Chairman and Chief Software Architect Bill Gates calls the centerpiece of his vision for the home of the future. After all, why settle for just a television set, a DVD player/recorder, an MP3 audio jukebox, a game machine, a digital photo viewer or a personal video recorder when you can have all of the devices wrapped up inside a nimble Windows XP computer with online access? Windows XP Media Center brings it all together for the first time, and adds push-button access to rich online services that transform the idea of interactive TV from a pipedream to reality. It?s time to put away the keyboard and mouse, grab hold of Media Center?s remote control, and hang on for the home entertainment experience of a lifetime!



Absolute Beginner?s Guide to Windows XP Media Center is your key to enjoying the home of the future ? today! Here?s a small sample of what you?ll find inside:







Watch, pause, rewind and record live television with push-button ease! XP Media Center provides the functionality of standalone TiVo or Replay TV persona video recorders ? but with no subscription fees!

Save your favorite TV shows and movies to your hard drive, then burn them onto DVDs that you can play anywhere!
