There’s no place like HomeGroup…There’s no place like HomeGroup…

Continuing on the Windows 7 news and articles, there’s a nice writeup over at TheGreenButton for what exactly is Home Group and how it can benefit you. Unfortunately us cable card owners are not as lucky since DRM’d recordings won’t work via this, but everything else does and it should make sharing content all that easier.


HomeGroup is a new feature in Windows 7 that allows multiple computers running Windows 7 to seamlessly share documents, pictures, music, media and printers. Windows 7 Media Center (7MC) has tapped into this new feature to provide a smoother experience for sharing media between Windows 7 computers. While users can access pictures and music through W7MC within the HomeGroup, I am going to focus on sharing recorded television content.
