I have several win7 machines at home. One is dedicated as my media hub, ie. Media Center records tv and I stream tv, music, etc., from it to my xbox 360 and I also watch recorded tv from my other machines right from within Media Center on the other machines. One thing I miss when I am on a "remote" machine is the ability to add a new recording or change a recording schedule like I am able to do when I connect to my media hub via my xbox 360. Is there a way to connect from one win7 machine to another win7 machine as an extender device or have the same capabilities you have via the xbox but when connected via a Win7 machine? I hope I'm making sense :-)
