XBOX ONE can use the same IR interface to control media center as it does with a DVR / set top box.
I have the IR from an old HP system, you can get them online cheap it's a USB IR blaster for Media Center.
Ok, I understand, now. I did that for a while with a cable box, but switched up to using a cablecard in media center instead. 4 channels, FTW!

That's only end of MainStream support phase isn't it?
The Extended phase (Security Updates) for Win7 is until 2020.
If that's the case, then awesome. Given how long XP was around, it did sound kind of quick that Win7 was getting thrown on the heap, but time marches on. I'd have updated as soon as Win8 came out, but the process is prone to failure. The safe solution of installing fresh has problems with losing DRM keys to recorded shows.
1st world problems.
