Got a call this weekend from friends who finally took the plunge and brought home a new Xbox 360. They already have a Media Center PC and they wanted to know how to configure their new game machine as a Media Center Extender.
My response: why read when you can watcn and learn. Just fire up the broadband connection and check out Chris Turkstra’s Expert Zone Support WebCast on just such a scenario:
“This session provides an overview of the Media Center Extender feature that is included in every Microsoft Xbox 360. With an Xbox 360, a computer that is running Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005, and a network, you can extend the Media Center experience – in high definition, including all your TV, pictures, music and videos – to any room in your house. This WebCast will cover computer and network requirements, setup, and the features, end user benefits, and limitations of using Xbox 360 as a Media Center Extender.”
