Vista How To: Share Recorded TV with other Media Centers / Domain Version
With Vista now officially released, expect to see a lot more tips & tricks to get everything you want out of it. Found this one at Mike Brown's blog, a nifty hack if you need to distribute your recorded shows to other systems on your domain.
One such benefit of a domain is the ability to grant computer accounts
permissions like we do for regular users. The reason for allowing
anonymous users access to the recorded tv share for non-domain members
is becuase the Media Center services run as the local system account.
The local system account, like is sounds, only has access to resources
on it's own machine, so granting anonymous access was required to
allow Media Center to access the remote share. Well not so true in a
domain environment, each computer in a domain is represented by a
computer account, which like a user account can have permissions
granted or denied to it.
