    Hi All,

    I have a friend who has a media centre PC attached to his cable tv box. He
    wants to also use the media centre PC in the room next door as well and wants
    to know if it is possible to run 2 monitors and 2 remote control units from
    one PC. The room is right next door and the cables will actually reach fine,
    just not sure if two remotes will work on one media centre PC. He will be
    only watching one tv at a time. I am not sure if this will work? what do you
    think? Can MCE be sent to two monitors at once?

    Thanks

  2. It may be possible to find some kind of video switcher for sVideo, but I
    don't know how he'd do the remote (far as I know you can only have one IR
    receiver).

    He'd be better off using an Extender or XBox 360 to extend Media Center into
    that next room...that's what they were designed for.
