Chapter 23. XP Media Center and Your Internet Connection

In This Chapter

  • The importance of having an active Internet connection for your Media Center PC

  • How to reestablish or modify an Internet connection within Media Center

  • Choosing an automatic connection for retrieving guide data

  • Choosing a manual connection for retrieving guide data

  • Using Media Center's Online Spotlight to download movies, music, and software, or to access news and tips

Although it's possible to operate a Media Center PC without an Internet connection, doing so would cripple some of the most interesting and compelling features of the device. These include the interactive program guide, Internet-only radio stations, the ability to look up liner notes and details for audio CDs, and access to a wide range of content, software, and services available through a Media Center feature called Online Spotlight (see Figure 23.1).
