Microsoft has upgraded the Windows Media Center in Windows 7 by adding internet TV functionality and a slew of other home entertainment options

When used to its fullest, Media Center can turn your computer into a powerful home entertainment hub. You can unleash the full power of Media Center by connecting your computer to a high-definition TV and using a Media Center remote to control all the action from your couch.

Windows Media Center now supports more global TV standards and tuners, including digital and HD. It also plays more popular audio and video formats—including 3GP, AAC, AVCHD, MPEG-4, WMV, and WMA, not to mention AVI, DivX, MOV, and Xvid files.

Then there is the Internet TV portion of WMC 7.  It offers a great lineup of online shows and movies, all displayed in a convenient program guide. No TV tuner required.  Make elegant photo collages (with background music) using the new slide show maker—perfect for parties or family get-togethers.

Enjoy recorded TV shows, music, video—even when it's not stored on your PC. The new HomeGroup feature makes media available to any PC running Windows 7 in the house.
