Windows MCE 2005 Update Coming

June 19, 2005

Neowin is reporting that Microsoft is preparing an update for MCE 2005. The update is expected to go to manufacturing in August, and will include XBox 360 support, plus:

  • Native digital cable
  • Content Protection
  • Improve burning (DRM, network, Hi-def, DVD-RAM)
  • MCX on WinCE clients (Babylon, TV2 as stretch goal)
  • Playback reliability
  • Running 3rd party apps out of proc
  • Address top usability issues
  • Platform Security
  • Additional languages and locales

Some good and bad news there — I’m all for more features and reliability, but I could do without more content protection bumpf…
