DirecTV Home Media Center

Back in January, DirecTV announced plans for a new "Home Media Center" beast, to be released in 2006. Well, 2006 is nearly upon us, and they've taken the wraps off a preproduction version at the Electronic House Expo. The thing is supposed to allow you to access DirecTV content (video, music, photos) from anywhere in the house.

Users will be able to watch live and recorded content from any client receiver around the house. You can schedule a show to be recorded by the central server from any client. It's still unclear whether existing DirecTV units will be able to co-exist happily with the Media Center server.
