Windows Media Center is a feature included in some editions of Windows 7. You can use Media Center to watch, record, and pause live TV; listen to your entire music collection; view your family pictures and home movies; burn CDs and DVDs; and listen to Internet and FM radio. And if you have a compatible remote control, you can do all of this from across the room. You can even connect your Media Center PC to your TV so the whole family can enjoy the show.
