Ian Dixon (Digital Lifestyle / Media Center Show) + Tony Campbell’s new book – "Using Microsoft Windows Vista Media Center" has just been released – and is now available to buy on Amazon.

Some highlights on the contents (taken from Ian’s blog) –

The book is good for beginners as it covers buying considerations and hardware components as well as seasoned users as it covers upgrading from XP and some of the advanced settings in Vista.

Here are a selection of the areas the book covers 

  • Introducing Windows Media Center
  • What’s new in Vista Media Center
  • Upgrading from XP
  • Connecting your PC to a TV
  • Network configuration
  • Setting up TV
  • Working with Recorded TV and advanced settings
  • Playing DVDs
  • Burning DVDs
  • Working with Videos
  • Working with Music, playlists etc
  • Working with Pictures
  • Working with Radio

Plus lots more

Also – its only 7 pounds (around AUD$17) so it’s a real bargain – and a highly recommended read!
