Review: MCE Extender for XBox (WhiningDog.net)
The WhiningDog.net has a review of Microsoft's MCE Extender for XBox, a cheap way to extend a MCE DVR to another television if you already own an XBox. If you don't, it might be a good back door way of convincing your significant other that an XBox is needed.
Sounds like a good product except for two things I find disappointing:
- You need to have the software CD inserted in the XBox to run the software, making it a hassle to flip between watching television and watching a DVD on the XBox
- There is no support for XVID/DIVX, which unfortunately, is the format of choice for most of my video library given it's smaller footprint
That being said, it's not a bad product for $80, including a remote control with a stylish, big green button in the middle of it.
