i have a xbox and a 360. i never use my xbox any more just strictly for media center. i play all my tv shows that i have backed up, i play music, and movies. well i am tired of the look of the xbox. so basically i want to put my xbox in a new case so it looks better with my entertainment center. anybody know of any good media center cases that will fit my xbox. i dont even need controller ports just one for the ir dongle. any ideas how i can make this look good with my entertainment center? also one last thing i got a logitech uiversal remote (not the remote for the 360) and it does work with my xbox, anyway i can make it turn off and on my xbox. i remeber seeing a mod around for it, for the standard xbox remotes but not to sure if it can be used for a universal remote.

heh, recently found that article as well and yup the site is kaput. No surprise the damn thing cost an arm and a leg. You could use any HTPC box, but you'll have to fab your own stand offs and such. Many people use DVD player cases as broken DVD players can be had for cheap or free. Older DVD players came in nice big metal cases that looked pretty nice.

yea but then again 150 isnt bad for a case that you do not have to do any work really (well with my understanding of the case)
