        I just pulled the Xbox one off my Christmas list when I found this out. Complete deal breaker! I know 3 people that don't even game, that purchased 360's just because it's such a great media center extender. You say you want to be a living room media/entertainment hub, and then you pull the media center? I am just blown away at how stupid it was to take that out.

        I have 4 xbox 360's in my house that I would replace with the Xbox one, if it had the extender function. I have a 6 tuner card in a PC that we use for our main DVR. TO MICROSOFT: I am trying to hand you money for your products! Please bring back the native extender support you had in the xbox 360.

        Just opened my xbox one strongly considering sending it back. was hoping the dlna functionality would be acceptable but it is not. Half the channels get no video. 360 hd streams fine from same network connection. what a joke.

        Truly a step backwards for us, the consumer. I'll guarantee the lack of XB1's media extender functionality in the same fashion of the XBOX 360 has to do with some deal with the TV providers (Comcast, Time Warner Cable, etc.) -- since they don't get our money when we dont rent stupid boxes from them.

        Like the voices of many... I'll happily buy a piece of equipment that I don't need (since my 360 works fine) as soon as native streaming of as a MCE is available.

        I was about to exchange my 360 for an Xbox one, but when found out this feature is not enabled, cancelled the order. If this feature is added, I will re-consider.

        How is the simple service not included on the "upgraded' xbox one? What a joke

        Is this a joke? How is this not enabled? It's super easy software. My 5 Xbox 360's are ready to be replaced. I want to replace with Xbox One's but WILL NOT if there is not Media Center Extender capability.
        Don't you WANT to be better than PS4?

        I wonder exactly why Microsoft is both avoiding this and stopping outsiders from making it happen. Is it possible that big cable companies or electronic manufacturers are causing this fiasco?

        Microsoft - My 360 units are getting old but i would replace them in a heartbeat IF you would add extender capability to the xbox one.

        So amazing. Microsoft does not respond to the highest requested idea. I am with Jdubalya. I just got my Xbox one last night. Learned of the lack of media center support. I am speechless. Probably going to return my console to Costco. HOW CAN MS CLAIM THIS CONSOLE IS MEDIA-CENTRIC WHEN IT CAN'T PLAY FILES CREATED IN WINDOWS MEDIA CENTER. I am disappointed.

        I will buy four xbox one consoles to replace my four xbox 360 consoles once you enable media center extender capability.

        I just purchased a Xbox one and was very upset to see that MCE did not exist.
        I will be returning it and going back to a PC. If MS brings back MCE, I will repurchase.

        Xbox 360 gets the lion share of the usage in my house due to the lack of MCE support in Xbox One. Would likely buy 2-3 more Xbox Ones if it natively support MCE.

        Over the years I’ve purchased 7 xboxes, three original Xboxes and four Xbox 360’s (two of which include Kinect). While I used them initially for gaming my use change significantly as an entertainment device primarily as a MCE, for Windows Media Center. I know there are hacks for running MCE in XB1 but Microsoft doesn’t support it natively, like it does on Xbox 360. How unfortunate! The day MSFT supports MCE on Xbox One is the day I purchase one or two.

        Given the number of votes here I can't believe this is still "under review"?!?!?
