MCE Webguide for MCE 2005

Ran across an upgrade for MCE Webguide today that allows it to run on MCE 2005.

MCE Webguide is a great web application that was written for MCE 2002 and 2004 that allows you access to your program guide and recorded tv shows over the web.  The development never went too far once MCE 2005 was released, I can only assume that this is because MSN has its own Remote Record service in the works.

Even with MSN Remote Record coming, I think that MCE Webguide makes a pretty decent alternative to a Media Center Extender for those who want access to their MCE functions through other PCs in the house (ie streaming video and a pseudo-MCE interface).  The MSN service is unlikely to provide video streaming, so Webguide still has a place.

I’ve not installed this version on MCE 2005, so proceed with caution and please post back here letting me know of your experience with this.
