  2. henry,

    No, it's not the same.

    Media Center 2002 includes windows XP service pack 1, which is required by
    Media Center. There are no "service packs" for media center, at least not
    with that name.

    Media Center 2004 was released as an upgrade for MCE v1.0 users through the
    OEMs.

    The quickest way of knowing which version you have installed, other than
    noticing the changes in the UI design, is checking if "The Spotlight"
    appears as an option in the main menu. If it does, it is 2004, if it
    doesn't, it is 1.0

    To confirm, just click on settings, about media center and you should get
    the information right there.

    Regards,

    Luis
    Edition 2002 service pack 1?
