Stay connected. The HP Digital Entertainment Center will make
friends fast with the rest of your home theater equipment.
Connect to your TV or projector through DVI, VGA,
component video, S-video or composite video.


Enjoy digital

or analog surround sound output through your A/V receiver.

Quiet but sexy. The black, brushed-aluminum finish looks
at home in your living room or home theater. An ultra-
quiet design keeps your focus on your entertainment
experience, not on your system.

Everything at your fingertips. A single remote control gives you
instant access to all your digital entertainment—TV, DVD
movies, home videos, music, photos and FM radio—through




XP Media Center Edition 2005.

TV at your speed. Two high-performance TV tuners and a
personal video recorder (PVR) let you pause, replay and
record from cable, digital cable, digital satellite, or over-
the-air TV. Record up to two TV programs simultaneously
while playing a third recorded program.

TV on your time. Search for and record your must-see TV
shows with the included Electronic Programming Guide.


You can capture single episodes or entire series onto the
HP Digital Entertainment Center. You’ll never miss another
episode of your favorite show!

Listen in. Make your own CDs


or enjoy the ones you

already have. You can even select individual songs,
create play lists, or search for music by title, artist and
album. It’s like having a jukebox right in your living room!

Movie magic. Play your favorites or download new


—and get ready for crisp, clear images and

unbeatable surround sound from your big-screen TV.

Your turn to burn. Create your own media library when
you record TV shows, home videos and music onto space-
saving DVDs with the double-layer DVD±R/RW drive.


Leave a lasting impression. Use LightScribe technology


and software to burn custom, laser-etched CD and DVD
labels. It’s as easy as burn, flip, burn!

Focus on fun. Transfer your latest and greatest digital photos using
the front-panel 9-in-1 memory card reader. Use your remote
control to create an impromptu slideshow your family will love.

Hold everything. With the 200GB

you’ll have plenty of storage for many hours of recorded
TV. Add more instantly with an optional 160GB or
