Got the good news from the publisher today that my book "Using Microsoft Windows Vista Media Center" co-authored with Tony Campbell is out today.

It has been a great experience writing the book and a pleasure writing a book on such a great product. I have learnt a lot about Windows Media Center while doing the book, in fact I found some hidden settings that can make a big difference to your Media Center experience. I have decided to do some videos to accompany the book to show off some of these features.

Working with Tony Campbell was great too as Tony has plenty of experience writing which was great as this is the first book I have worked on. I am looking forward to the day I can walk in to a book store and see it on the shelf (It should be in Waterstones in the UK in a couple of weeks)

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!

Best of all on its only £7.19 So what are you waiting for, go order it!
