Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition (MCE) transforms your PC into a media center and moves it into the livingroom. MCE is acutally an alternative to your VCR since it allows you to user your PC to view and record TV, view DVDs, listen to your music, watch you photos and much more from the comfort of your couch. MCE even includes an electronic program guide (epg) that makes it easier to navigate through your tv channels and select shows for recording. And all of the TV shows you record can easily be copied to CD or DVD.
