3. Windows 7 Media Center Software Installation - Video

The following slide show illustrates the installation of the Duet Tuner card and Windows 7 software setup procedure.
Slideshow captions should be turned on as you sequence through the images. Turn them off temporarily if you have difficulty reading the text behind captions, or click in the center of the slide to go directly to the Picasa Web album where the full-size images for this slideshow exist.

Notes on connecting to the Internet:
I started out by using an inexpensive USB WiFi Stick plugged into the back of the Media Center to avoid stringing cable through the house. This seemed to work fine at first, but after a while I experienced random interruptions and slowdowns while watching NetFlix streaming movies. I switched over to a CAT-5 Ethernet cable, connected at the rear of the box and wired directly to my DSL Modem. I find this provides the fastest data connection for watching streaming video.

The next post describes the setup of Windows Media Center and the Xbox Universal Remote Control.
