        As a stockholder(MSFT), and potential XB1 and Win10 subscriber, I would like to throw in my vote for WMCex(XB1), and WMC(Win10). Many people wnat to avoid use of a cable provided DVR, and have the abilty to share tuners/DVR content household wide. A serious financial cost analysis needs to be applied to these features, one that gets the true demand of the many loyal windows media center customers.

        I check this page everyday! I would upgrade the 3 Xbox 360 s in my house tomorrow if you just ported the app over. I understand you want to sell SLING TV subscriptions instead but I would prefer the functionality I already paid for!!!!!!!!!!!!

        Do you have any idea how many boxes would be sold just because you add WMC extender!!!! I am looking in other solutions to meet my need. 14,000+ votes and over a year under review.

        I have 3 Xbox 360s I would upgrade but this functionality is PREVENTING me from doing so! This was the only reason I switched from PS. You also need to again update wmc for windows PC. Give the customers what they want Microsoft!

        I have four Xbox 360s with an InfiniTV 6 tuner and 8TB of storage, for a wife and three kids. I would gladly abandon the 360's to buy four Xbox Ones, but not until they can function as an extender. I realize my words have little weight for a company the size of Microsoft, but if there's even one small ear to the ground, lets hope they hear our cries for One extender support!

        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

      • jackjack commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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!
