Make use of Skype in your living room The new software mcePhone for Skype 1.0 now makes it possible to use Skype in your living-room together with Windows XP Media Center 2005. In order to benefit from these possibilities, Skype (www.skype.com) must previously be installed and properly onfigured. mcePhone is compatible with every hardwaretelephone that works with normal Skype windows client and is connected to the Media Center 2005. Christoph Buenger: ?I use a wireless hardware-telephone that is connected to my Media Center computer. Since then my telephone-bill has been reduced to a minimum - and I keep on using the telephone as I am used to and get some additional features beyond old-fashioned telephony.? mcePhone for Skype shows a welcome-page on start with some useful facts. You can see your own Skype-Status (online, offline, ?) and you can even change this directly just by remote control. The SkypeOut credit for ?outside calls? directly bought from Skype, is also shown here. Furthermore, the user can see how many of his Skype contacts are presently online, how many calls have been missed in his absence and whether or not there are any new voicemails. Whenever a new Skype-call comes in, mcePhone for Skype instantly shows this even if live TV or any other video is showing. The current TV programme can be paused automatically so that you can pay all attention to the telephone-call without having to let slip by one moment of your favourite TV-show or the most gripping part of any film. An incoming call can be accepted, ignored or rejected directly by remote control. Christoph Buenger: ?If you do not want to be disturbed while watching a good movie, mcePhone for Skype can be configured to block off all incoming calls during that time.?
