Found 14th Feb 2006
Hi im looking for a good deal on a PC that comes ready for use in the living room with Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 as the OS. A larger HD would be preffered but not essential as can easily upgraded.

A question would this PC on sale at aldi
aldi.co.uk/spe…tml

be able to be used as a media centre pc and just buy the Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 and install it?

Many thanks
Rob

Yup. That would work. Or use a different media front end. e.g. MythTV on linux (which would be free)

mythtv.org/

From my experience, MythTV is not for faint-hearted. Good Linux knowledge is required. But functionality is exceptionally good.
For free Windows alternative, try GB PVR.
