The MCE Hardware

Suffice it to say that MCE machines have serious hardware requirements. At the most, an MCE machine has

  • A remote infrared (IR) sensor that enables the remote control to communicate with the computer and that also controls the cable or satellite set-top box

  • A fast graphics card for smoothly displaying moving images such as video and TV playback

  • A TV tuner that captures the television signal from a cable, satellite, or antenna source

  • A hardware encoder that enables you to record TV shows from cable, satellite, or antenna to your computer's hard disk in real time

  • A TV output jack so you can display Media Center content on a television connected to your computer

  • A digital audio output that allows you to integrate digital audio from your computer into an existing home entertainment system
