When we spoke to Robbie Bach at CES he referred to a piece of Microsoft technology called Microsoft Media Room as a key component of the "connected entertainment" experience.

I didn't know a lot about Media Room so we met with Peter Barrett, CTO of the MSTV group (and fellow Aussie), at CES 2008 for a hands on introduction to Microsoft Media Room; What is it, how does it work and how can we all get our hands on it?

    Hopefully there will be some sort of announcement that clarifies if there will be a "connected experience" between Media Center and MediaRoom.  At the moment, they seem to have no relationship other than TV.  And thats a cause of concern..I'm hesitant to buy Media Extenders if those devices won't extend MediaRoom as well.  Maybe someone has some info?

    That's an interesting question - I'll ping the media room guys and see if we can get some more info.
