      Hardware requirements
      Media Center has higher hardware requirements than other versions of Windows XP. MCE 2005 requires at least a 1.6 GHz (or equivalent) processor, DirectX 9 hardware-accelerated GPU (such as a recent ATI Radeon or Nvidia GeForce), and 256 MB of RAM. Some functionality, such as Media Center Extender support, use of multiple tuners, or HDTV playback/recording carries higher system requirements.

      Media Center is much more restricted in the range of hardware that it supports than most other software DVR solutions. Media Center tuners must have a standardized driver interface, and they must have hardware MPEG-2 encoders, closed caption support, and a number of other features. Media Center remote controls are standardized in terms of button labels and functionality, and, to a degree, general layout.
      From here

      I presume you are looking to purchase this software, otherwise please don't ask here!

      Re: Media Centre for xbox 360

      it may be of your interest, - there is a package floating about the p2p networks which converts you excisting windows xp instalation into a media centre instalation. It simply changes the files that are needed to run, and it works fine with x360 video streaming.

      The package is around 400 megs.

      However, windows vista can be found on the internet, or bought in shops from the end of febuary, (or there abouts). Windows vista has media centre built into it, and supports streaming ect.

      I hope this is of help.
