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