        Without Extender support i have no use to purchase an xbox one when 99% on my overall use for my 360's has been purely as an extender. This is the key item that made the system great and without it i refuse to buy an xbox one as it is a step backward

        This sounds like progress on the Windows Media Center front. Like many others in this thread, I won't move to Xbox One or Windows 10 unless WMC Extender is on the Xbox One and WMC is part of Windows 10. If it happens I'll buy both immediately.

        Why was this merged with Make Streaming Media Easier?

        To anyone at Microsoft listening: Make Streaming Media Easier was about making it easier to play content from around your network (not through some terrible DLNA interface). Media Center Extender support is about making a Media Center Extender app for the Xbox One.

        One can only hope that someone at MS reviews this again and decides to really DO SOMETHING. I WANT an X-BOX ONE but will not purchase it without the media center extender capability that my aged 360 unit has.

        Please continue supporting this amazing product. Microsoft rarely gets complements from the true techies out there and they LOVE WMC. Please make an extender for XBOX One, and please provide it in Windows 10.

        media center extender needs to be ported to a universal app to run on XBOX One/iOS/Andriod/Windows Phone/Windows Desktop/Windows Tablets etc

        the xbox extender needs to be ported to a universal app

        Media center extender capability would make this unit the one to buy for my family and I am sure many others.

        Yea I have one 360 used as an extender already and was looking to add another in a different room. I of course thought I would get an Xbox One instead because it seemed obvious to me that it would also have extender functionality. Well I was surprised when looking online that it does not support media center extender.

        I really don't want to spend on another 360 just as an extender. Guess I'll hold off for now, I would totally buy an Xbox One tomorrow though if it had media center extender built in or they announced they were adding it.

        Microsoft being lazy. Fail!

        I would swap out all my XBOX 360's with XBOX ONE's if they had Media Center Extender Support.

        And thank you PLEX for filling some of the void no Media Center on the One has left us!!!

      • LeithLeith commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Cable boxes are garbage. Media Center is hands down the best thing around and it hasn't even been further developed in how long?! I can't believe we even need to request this. Keep Media Center Alive or I may be forced to move to Apple when they come out with something similar. If Microsoft gives up on this and Apple comes out with alternative that would be a major fail. Writing is on the wall Microsoft.....

        It's sad that MS has not even acknowledged this, specially since thousands of Media Center users are begging for it.
        As an alternative I setup Amazon's fire tv with XBMC. Works fine as an extender for watching and recording tv. So for those of you out there looking for alternatives to 360s and Ceton's, you can get get almost all the same functionality for <$85.
        Crazy thing is a lot of people, including me, are willing to pay 4x that to get the same functionality with the One. Microsoft: I truly think you're leaving money on the table by ignoring this. We are your hard core fans. We are the guys who consume your eco-system. We are the guys that socially promote your products for free. Listen to us. Please.

        Not having this is huge for me. I use my 360 95% of the time as an extender. My HTPC is in the living room and we have multiple 360's around the house and use them as extender's. (watch recorded TV, set recordings, watch live TV etc.) I do NOT have cable TV so the Xbox One's features there serve no purpose for me. My HTPC has 4 tuners in it for OTA television.

        Because of this, I'm looking at the PS4. I WANT the xbox one but since it cannot be used as a true media system like I want, and cannot replace my 360, it allows the PS4 to become a bigger choice for me. So conflicted.. and sad.. Microsoft COMON bring this feature back!!!

        I find it amazing that I had to find a used 360 unit to add to my system rather than buy a new xbox one unit. MICROSOFT = Please move us into the new technology - imagine the possibilities. Or in the corporate world - imagine the profit for some marginal expense.

        I have been introduce to Microsoft Media Center via my friend Xbox 360! Loved it! I had got 3 friends to conver to Xbox because of it, Now a Xbox One user, was very upset to see the lack of functionality. Please Work your MOJO..... Make it Happen.
