What is eBay?

eBay really needs no introduction, but in case you have not heard about eBay, it is the largest and most popular online auction web site in the world. eBay provides a safe environment for buying and selling products over the internet under auction conditions.

What software do I need?

The choice of software is easy as there is only one software program that brings the eBay experience to Windows XP Media Centre Edition 2005 and it is called mceAuction. mceAuction allows you to enjoy eBay from the comfort of your lounge chair using a remote control or remote keyboard. Once you have downloaded and installed mceAuction it is very easy to use.

If you do not have an existing eBay account, then the setup wizard will allow you to create an eBay account during the installation process. Just click on the Create eBay Account button when it is displayed. After installation is complete, you can find mceAuction in the More Programs menu. Click on the Auctions icon to run the program :-

More Programs

The first time you run the program, click on the Settings button, then the Users button and finally the Add User button. Enter in your eBay account details and select the ebay site for your location :-

Add User

Once this is done you are ready to go, grab your remote control or remote keyboard, sit back, relax, as the hard work is over.

The Welcome screen includes the main menu where every thing happens :-


Press the Browse button to browse all of eBay's categories :-


Press the Search button to search for a specific item. When searching, be as detailed as possible and include a part number if known, include the manufacturer name if known and so on. The more details you include, the less results you will have to go sort through :-


There are a number views that can be displayed for each auction. They include Details, Pictures and Descriptions :-




The Details view is where you can make actual bids for products that you are interested in purchasing. Please read the product description and auction rules carefully before placing a bid and if you have any questions you should contact the buyer before placing a bid.

The Watch button adds auctions to your watch list. If you simply want to keep an eye on an auction you are interested in, the watch list is the place to do it. In version 2.0 of mceAuction, auctions that are on your watch list and ending soon will be brought to your attention in an alert box even if you are watching TV. This is a great feature as it allows you to place a bid on an auction that you would have otherwise missed. Previous versions of mceAuction do not include this feature.

My eBay includes lots of functionally and this is where you can manage your auctions (both buying and selling) :-
  • I watch: The auctions on your watch list
  • I bid: The auctions you are bidding on, that have not yet ended
  • I won: The auctions that you have successfully won
  • I lost: The auctions that you did not win.
  • I sell: The auctions that you have listed for sale, that have not yet ended
  • I have sold: The auctions you listed for sale, that have sold
  • Unsold: The auctions you listed for sale, that did not sell
It should not take you to long to get the hang of navigating around eBay and with a bit of luck, you'll be buying lots of products, at great prices, in no time. Don't forget to check out our eBay store while you are there!
