Media Center PC's and set-top boxes haven't quite hit mainstream yet, but are a centerpiece of every true nerds entertainment center.

This is increasingly the case among Xbox 360 owners who find that the console has a built-in extender, though getting it to play anything other then Windows Media 11 and MPEG-4 requires some tweaks.

Well that changes today as MS has introduced the new standard: "Extenders for Windows Media Center", which thankfully includes support for DivX and XviD.

Niveus, Linksys, and D-Link will be developing new devices to take advantage of the new features, including full HDTV streaming and 802.11n wireless. Nice.

No word yet on whether the new features will hit the 360 as part of the coming Fall Update.
