Chapter 22. XP Media Center and Your Home Network

In This Chapter

  • Why Media Center supports networking—but doesn't rely on it

  • Choosing the right type of network for your home: Ethernet, wireless, phone line, or power line

  • How to test your network connection with Internet Explorer and Media Center

  • Troubleshooting your connection: what to do when you can browse but can't get guide data

  • How to add network folders to the “watch list” for recorded TV
