    Programs are added to the More Programs list when you install MC plug-ins (eg Tweak MCE).

    You can't just add FF or IE to the menu. You'd need a plugin. I'm not aware of a browser plugin for MC.

    One way to do this would be to create your own .MCL file.

    Open up notepad and put something like this in

    <application name="BBC Website" url="www.bbc.co.uk" startimage="**** .png image location ****" thumbnailimage="**** .png thumbnail imagepng" description="**** description ****" companyname=" ***** ">
    <capabilitiesrequired directx="false" audio="false" video="false" intensiverendering="false" console="false" cdburning="false" />
    </application>


    Where I've put in ***'s in you will have to put a link/url to a .png image so this comes up in your MCE menus. Also change the references to the BBC webiste :) you could also play around with the other bits but for an IE link theres no need.

    Once you have done this save it as a .MCL file to the following location.

    ACCESSORIES -> MEDIA CENTER -> MEDIA CENTER PROGRAMMES ->

    Once you have done this it will appear in 'More Programmes'

    any probs let me know.
