Media Center 2005 update coming real soon

Media Center 2005 update coming real soon

If you have a PC with Windows Media Center Edition 2005, you've probably been sitting around anxiously waiting for the next OS update, dubbed Rollup 2, or Emerald. This is especially true if you're in Denmark or Finland, two of the many countries that will now support Media Center functions after the update, which will be available for free through the standard Windows Update app. If you're not in one of those countries, or in Slovakia, Norway, and so on, there are still a few things to look forward to, including support for a second HD tuner and Xbox 360 Media Center Extender functionality.

Registered Microsoft OEM system builders have been able to download the update for almost two weeks, so that means Joe Consumer is next in line. All signs point to mid-October.
