Many of us have lots of digital content on our computers from digital home movies and photos to recorded TV shows. One of the good things Vista offered in its more expensive versions was Windows Media Center making it easy to record programs over-the-air. The catch for many of us is that watching movies and TV shows on a small computer screen is less than ideal.
This is where HP came in with its Internet connected HP MediaSmart TV that can view Internet programming with built-in Wi-Fi connectivity. HP announced this week that it is the first company to release Microsoft’s Media Center Extender capability in an Internet-connected HDTV.
