What is the best Windows Media Center Extender? I am debating if I should get an extender or hook directly to my video card. The video card method is going to be a pain to control and many of the remotes aren't that good. Is there a really good extender out there with a good remote as well as support for HDMI?

I use my xbox 360 and it works well enough for me. It keeps my big noisy PC away from my TV watching experience.

The 360 is easily the best media center extender. Plus you get a free gaming system with it. –  hernan43 Jul 15 '09 at 14:28

I wouldn't say it's the best by any stretch of the imagination, but I use the Apple TV. It works with anything that iTunes works with, so that includes Windows.

Its really easy to use, syncs with iTunes wirelessly and has a huge library of downloadable content, rentable, purchaseable, everything.

Does it work with Windows Media Center? –  Nick Berardi Jul 15 '09 at 13:04
    
Ah, um, probably not... heh. I didn't fully understand that when you said media center extender that you were specifically referring to Windows Media Center. –  Jasarien Jul 15 '09 at 13:45
