Xbox® Media Center Extender Kit From MS
Posted 08 January 2004 - 01:52 AM
Read the entire press release here:
MS Windows Media Center Extender Technology Delivers Digital Entertainment and the Media Center Experience to Any Screen in the House
(copy link location, paste into address bar and change MS to the full name of the corporation in the URL as the board is replacing it with MS)
Neowin.net also has some more interesting tidbits, including codenames for this and related products, a screenshot, and a link to a Windows Media Center Extender Brochure from MS.
This is an interesting development and goes along well with Bach's (Chief Xbox Officer) comments (from the Reuter's news item featured earlier today on the X-S home page) concerning MS doing upgrades via software rather than hardware.
That said, perhaps it also gives us a glimpse into what may be in store for the next generation of the Xbox...

here is the pdf
hmmm i wonder if MS made this program 100% on their own, or if one/some of the xbmc developers were hired by MS, or if MS just stole the xbmc/xbmp source code and went on from there!

|I maybe mistaken but I think XBMP/XBMC used the MS Media Center design for their apps.|
Yup xbmp was based upon the "freestyle" look of windows media center... Theres a skin on AXS that is pretty much windows media center 2004 ( the version thats gonna be displayed on the xbox)
the homebrew xbmc will be much better anyway
