The new remote media player functions allow users to convert any of their
existing computer hardware (eg. an old Windows or Linux PC) into a media
center and file server. Computers with TV out capabilities can be used as
TV set-top boxes. Since PC-Mac-Net FileShare can also be used to upload and
download media files over LANs and the Internet (even during media
playback), hard disk storage requirements are minimal.
The Standard Edition is available as a 4 pack (USD39.95), 2 pack (USD24.95)
and 1 pack (USD14.95). The Professional Edition is available as a 50 pack
