This is a website dedicated to the major project I am working on at my house. It's a wiring job to get distributed audio and video in all the bedrooms, living room, and garage. I'm using Microsoft's Windows 7 Media Center as the user interface including Xbox 360's as Media Center Extenders. My goal for this project is to allow my family to access all the media from any one of the remote locations. My priority is simplicity. I want everyone to be able to pick up the remote and enjoy all the benefits that Media Center has to offer. That is, in fact, one of the reasons that I chose Media Center. I feel that it can provide the simplest way to access the media.
