Remote Control From SoundGraph Changes WinXP Into A Multimedia Center

The Multi-Media Display

The Multi-Media Control Panel is designed like Microsoft's Media Center. Navigation between the different levels is via user-friendly icons, and the panel can be operated using the mouse, keyboard or IR remote control unit. The hard drive has to be scanned prior to initial use; the default setting only scans the directories in "My Files," but the Multi-Media software also lets you select other directories or drives. Once you've configured all the settings, navigation is extremely simple. Shortcuts on the remote control unit let you switch directly to video or audio playback or photo display.

The files cannot be used until the hard drive is scanned

Any found files are then listed
