Family Room: Media Center

Family Room: Media Center,

In January 2005, I posted the following picture of my Windows Media Center setup. In the past five years, we’ve had a 2nd child, and moved once. I also moved to TiVo Series3 when HDTV became generally available and WMC in Vista didn’t deliver the experience I was looking for. Windows 7 changes all of that. My wife has, on her own, started using Windows Media Center and Windows 7 has the DVR/MovieLibrary/Music/Photogallery for the home. We’ve also added a Windows Home Server to the mix. In the coming weeks, I’ll be posting details here (again) about our setup, just five years later.
