MSN Remote Record lets you program your Media Center PC to record TV from anywhere

This is cool.  BeyondTV has this already but it is good to see that MS is doing it too.

Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005

It’s a feature that’s already found in several other digital video recording software packages, but Microsoft says they’re going to add a new service called MSN Remote Record that’ll let you use any browser to remotely schedule a PC running Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 to record shows (useful if you’re on vacation or are at work and think of a show you’d like to have waiting for you when you return home). If you can’t wait, there’s a plug-in that’s already available called AllMiMedia that let’s you do this with Media Center PCs (and that even works on smartphone browsers).
