Welcome to the new home of The Media Center Show, as from now this is the home for all my podcasts. I want to increase the community element of the show and the aim of the site is to show how Windows Media Center fits in with the digital lifestyle, there are new blogs and forums. This week I am pleased to be talking to Todd Headrick, Product Planner on the Windows Home Server team at Microsoft. We will be diving in to the features of Windows Home Server, finding out how it works and what it can do.
