    Why can't you make a Media Center PC in same form factor and as quiet as an XBox?  For that matter, why did you not just add Media Center into the XBox instead of just making it a client.  It is faster then any other Media Center on market.  Then I could just buy an xbox for my living room and hook that up to the INet and sound system and one in each bed room using the extender function.

    Who says they won't make it into a full-fledged Media Center?  The only thing missing is a TV Tuner and they could add that using one of the 3 available USB ports.

    I think that just might be possible - especially considering the latest news that there will probably be hard drives available eventually for the 360 at 40-80GB.
