How does Media Center work?

I'm completely new to Media Center so could someone tell me how I get video on my Win7 PC to play on my TV? Thanks.

You would need some method of connecting the 2 together. Something like VGA or Svideo would do the job. Both are not to expensive. your TV would have to support either of these methods in order for it to work however. It would be worth checking that the TV is capable or running either VGA or svideo.
