The difference between Home and Media Centre is purely the media part. Media Centre was designed to be part of a home entertainment system for a computer with TV card etc.

Thankyou Quiet Life and Diemmess your information is invaluable. It looks like the cheaper xp media centre will do for me, I can ignore the media bit
