Getting to Know the Media Center Remote Control

The remote control that shipped with your Media PC may have some cosmetic differences from the one shown in Figure 4.1, but it should be functionally identical. Even if your Media PC came with more than one remote control (at least one manufacturer's model—ABS Systems' Media Center PC 8400—actually ships with three remote controls: one for the speaker system, one for the 30-inch LCD display, and the Media Center remote control), you'll have no problem recognizing the Media Center control by its prominent green button. Think of this button as “home base” because it always brings you back to the Media Center home interface, allowing you to gain immediate access to the core Media Center applications: My TV, My Music, My Pictures, My Videos, Play DVD, and Settings.

Figure 4.1. The remote control shown here is the classic hyperbolic-shaped model that comes with most Windows XP Media Center Edition–based PCs.
