Win Media Center Unable to join domain

  1. Hey there,

    I'm attempting to connect a Dell Dimension DV051 PC to a domain using Active Directory.

    The XP Media Center Edition comes with Extenders preinstalled. Everyone who I talk to tells me that the extenders do not allow the Media Center Edition to join a domain using active directory. I'm trying to figure out if the extenders can be disabled in order for the pc to be part of active directory on the domain controller.

    Specs:
    Dell Dimension DV051
    Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition 2002 SP2
    Intel P4 2.80 GHz
    256 MB Ram
    70 Gig WD HDD
