Windows Media Center news


Staff member
LG announced the LRM-519 DVR/DVD recorder featuring Microsoft's new thin-client MCE-like DVR platform, which can be networked with any XP or XP MCE machine, allowing one to play back their photos, music files and video files. The unit will come with a 160GB hard drive, and will be for sale later this fall.

Rumors are also going around that MS Windows Media Center 2006 will be supporting CableCard, allowing MCE to directly record digital broadcast and HDTV programming without the need for a set top box.
