Rovi Corporation (Formerly known as Macrovision) today announced that consumers using devices built with the latest edition of Rovi’s Connected Platform media networking software will be able to find, play and share content (such as movies, TV shows, music and photos) stored on Windows 7-based Media Center PCs.
This really could be something interesting, as news and info is still scarce, Onkyo did however, announce two new AV Receivers, the TX-NAB807 and TX-NR807, that both will be integrated with the Rovi Connected Platform which are also Windows 7 Play-to certified.
As to whether or not the devices will really play back recorded tv shows, in full quality, without any transcoding has yet to be seen, but the more devices out there that can support playing back of Media Center content the better.
