Client/Server Hack For Windows MCE

It is unfortunate that we have to hack Windows MCE to get it to do what we want. However, workarounds like this are better then none. Ian and Richard Miller have posted a quick guide on how to use Windows Home Server to store and share your recordings. The hacks are relatively simple and open up a new way to distribute TV and movies throughout your home.

If you do not need to record live TV to the WHS, and just need it to store the recorded TV files and play from WHS, you can miss out "Recording Live TV to WHS" but you will still need the Batch file on the WHS. All Recorded TV stored on the WHS will show in "Recorded TV" on Vista or MCE 2005 and in "Recorded TV" in MCE UI on the Xbox360.
