Indepth review of the Media Center Extender for XBox - Courtsey Matt Goyer 's blog

Indepth review of the Media Center Extender for XBox:

Pros:

- Inexpensive
- Infrared Receiver for those without one on the Xbox (allows playback of DVDs)
- Easy setup
- Good video and audio streaming performance
- Allows you to control the MCE PC from afar

Cons:

- Ok user interface response times
- No support for playback of non-Microsoft media formats
- Need to have DVD in drive to boot into MCX mode
- Needs MCE 2005 OS

You can now watch HBO/CGMS-A content on your extender!

Update for HP Extenders
Update for Linksys extenders
This update enables MCX devices to remote CGMS-A protected content (HBO, Cinemax etc.). It also fixes some audio glitching and other quality related bugs.
