Media Center / Entertainment PC Introduction

It sounds so simple: use your PC with your stereo and TV. In many ways it really is simple but in most ways it is very difficult. The use of your PC's hard drive to store pictures, music and videos can be a wonderful thing. The Media Center version of Windows XP from Microsoft attempts to deliver these "simple" things. I have built a few of these machines, which I termed "Entertainment PC" and have enjoyed these functions for years.
Some basic obsticles must be overcome to have a satisfying system, not the least of which is noise.
