Summary: I use this Microsoft Xbox 360 E as a Media Center extender. It is by far the cheapest setup for recording and streaming TV content. You will need a PC running the Media Center software and at least one TV tuner video card. The setup is made quite simple by Microsoft by way of the interface on the PC and entering an 8-digit code that appears on the Xbox during Media Center setup.
Summary: since I really don't know anything about all the electronic things going on in the world, I feel that I was Lucky to have purchased this XBOX from Buy.com. It is great and my grandchildren love it. I was sorry that there was no warranty included with my XBOX. For that kind of money there should have been.
