1. Getting the Most from XP Media Center > Media Center’s Best Kept Secrets

Media Center’s Best Kept Secrets

Once you’ve got your XP MCE system set up and integrated into your home environment, it’s time to dig below the surface and uncover some of the little gems of functionality that will really improve your MCE experience.

How to Get the Most from the EPG

The electronic program guide (EPG), known in MCE simply as “Guide,” is an on-screen, interactive listing of all television and radio programs available for viewing over the coming days and weeks. An example of what the Guide looks like is shown in Figure 12.

The Guide lists all available channel information, based on information obtained from an Internet hosted source.

This Guide presentation is, in fact, a very powerful user interface. Not only is it used to display the next ten days worth of scheduled programs, but it is also the primary route to most of the added value that MCE provides.
