Part: I Getting Started > Basic Setup of an XP Media Center System

Chapter 2. Basic Setup of an XP Media Center System

In This Chapter

  • Taking inventory of your new Media PC

  • Considering additional materials you may need for your installation

  • Connecting your PC equipment (monitor, mouse, keyboard, and so on)

  • Connecting your entertainment-oriented components (remote control and sensor, IR emitter, television, speakers, and so on)

First of all, remember to breathe! You're about to unpack and set up your cool, new, expensive toy. This should be fun, but it can also be a little nerve-wracking—and it may even get downright frustrating at times. Setting up a Media PC is a bigger undertaking than simply plugging in your average desktop, but with a little patience, some common sense, and this book in your hands, we'll have you up and running in no time.
