Windows 7 Media Center Customization HandbookRSVR85 and I got together about a month ago and put together the Windows 7 Media Center Customization Handbook. RSVR85 took his previous Windows 7 Media Center Guides, updated them, and made them even easier to follow. I just put everything together and now it’s online and ready for your reading pleasure.

I’d like to thank RSVR85 for his hard work. This book is fantastic and I can’t wait to update my Media Center PC to Windows 7 so I can put these hacks into effect. His original forum post on the topic helped me customize Windows Vista’s Media Center (and this handbook will work, mostly, for Windows Vista Media Center.)

  • Looks Fantastic, can t wait to go through some of the great suggestions in this book.

  • MCE7 Fan Boy

    Good write up, certainly inspires me to “tweak” MCE7.
    Some links in this Book are no longer working and some Apps are no longer Free (Pay for features required) and (over priced – my opinion)

    • Thanks for your feedback. We are considering an update to this book but are not sure if there’s interest. I think there is :)
