Microsoft releases update for XP Media Center

Microsoft has released an update to Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 that will enhance the way consumers access digital media in their homes.

Windows XP Media Center Edition Update Rollup 2, which is available free to all Windows Media Center customers, allows users to integrate Media Center PCs with the forthcoming Xbox 360 gaming console.

This will enable customers that have both an Xbox 360 and a Media Center PC in their homes to access digital content from their PCs on an Xbox 360 at the same time, making that content more widely available on multiple devices.

More than 4 million Media Center PCs have been sold to date. There are currently for than 75 add-on services to Media Center PCs that have been built by third parties and more are expected before the end of the year by Microsoft.
