Download: Update Rollup 2 For Windows XP Media Center Edition

Update Rollup 2, the final update for Windows XP Media Center Edition, should be available today from Windows Update, but it is already available for download here. Paul Thurrott has an extended overview of the additions and fixes, but here are some highlight:

  • Adds support for the XBox 360 as a Media Center Extender, including streaming HDTV signals.
  • Adds support for “Away Mode” in future Windows PCs. In away mode, the PC does pretty much nothing but record TV and pump out signals to devices, while turning on instantly.
  • Adds support for DVD changers, burning HD to DVD, burning to dual-layer DVDs, and burning from Extenders.
  • Intelligent zoom mode
  • Optimization (soft rebooting of MCE services)
