New MCE extender boxes

Microsoft

September 5, 2007 10:05 PM PST

Microsoft is gearing up another round of MCE extender hardware via 3rd parties like Dlink, Linksys etc. The first attempt fell flat on its face. In fact the only successful extender so far has been the 360 (which totally rocks BTW). This time around they will be looking to more faithfully represent the MCE and Vista MC UIs. And to entice you further... they will include native Xvid and Divx support!

No mention yet if the 360 will be blessed with Xvid as well. We'll keep our fingers crossed.

Yes, this needs to come to the 360. A media extender without divx is like a music player without mp3 support. Dumb.

I agree. I would say the same about a portable video player. Apple are you listening?
