Configuring Media Center to Look for Recorded Shows on a Network
Personal network attached storage devices are becoming more and more
common in the home environment. I recently purchased a 1TB NAS (Network
Attached Storage) that I use to back up all my personal documents as well as
store recorded TV shows. I have my Media Center recording shows all the time,
so the hard drive on my desktop ills up very quickly. For the shows that I want
to keep, I move the file from my record folder to a special folder on my NAS that
I have configured Windows Media Center to watch and play files from. This is
possible with a few setting changes within Media Center.
Follow these steps to configure Windows Media Center to watch for recorded
shows in locations other than the main record folder:
1. Open the Start screen, type Media Center , and hit Enter to start up Media
2. After it has started, navigate to Tasks with arrow keys and then select
Settings and hit Enter.
3. Click Media Libraries.
