Xbox 360 as an Extender Rocks

December 19, 2005 at 11:08 am Leave a comment

I’m really enjoying the Media Center Extender functionality of my new Xbox 360. Last night I was watching Crimson Tide (one of my favs) on the MCE Always Ready computer in my bedroom. Couldn’t keep my eyes open so paused it and grabbed eight hours sleep. This morning, I finished watching the movie with morning coffee in my living room. Resumed from right where I’d left off. Here you can see that I’ve selected the Media Blade on my Xbox 360 and the connection is automatically made to the host MCE 2005 machine. I select Crimson Tide from the list and am offered the option to Resume (yeah!). The quality is stunning streaming over my wireless network.
