Podcast: The Media Center Show #241 – Remote Potato

Great interview this week with Carl Partridge the developer of Remote Potato, a remote scheduling app for Windows Media Center. With this app you can browse the EPG and schedule recordings via a web browser (including mobile phone browsers), this is a feature missing in Media Center since the changes to Windows 7 broke the fabulous Webguide addin. Carl talk about why he developed the app and how it works, I also have email and a roundup of the weeks news

Podcast: The Media Center Show #240 – Final CES 2010 Interviews

This is the final batch of interview from CES. I have Arcsoft talking about how to get 3D movies in Windows Media Center using Total Media Theatre, they have some great solution for movie watching in Media Center including HD audio and upscalling. Of course 3D requires special hardware and so I talked with Nvidia about the hardware needed to get 3D working on the PC.

The Zune team where at CES talking about the progress they have made over the last year including launching the Zune HD and the Zune marketplace in the Xbox 360, so I talked to Michael Yaeger from the Zune team about the current state of Zune

Garry took a trip down to see Pronto from Phillips about their remote control devices including devices that can control Sonos systems.

The final section wraps up the week with a chat with Bjorn Morris from Cybersmart systems who had his first trip to CES and we find out what caught his eye at the show

Plus I also have a roundup of the weeks news and I want your feedback on the next UK user group event
