    An old question I guess - anyone know when proper media center extenders will be available in the UK?

    I don't want and xbox solution (too big and far too noisy), but a proper wireless extender in the vein of the DLINK DSM-320 (but MCE of coure)

    :lease:

    Probably never as they werent designed to run in the UK all MCE is designed for the USA as thats obviously the biggest market you want my advice get a USA extender off ebay if an xbox is too loud for you or simply wait for the xbox 360 which I think is about as official as the UK extenders are going to get.

    think I read somewhere the Xbox 360 is supposed to be remarkably quiet.

    X360 uses a 2.5" disk (same as most laptops) unlike the normal Xbox which has a 3.5" disk (same as your pc). Laptop disks are far quieter than desktop units and so I would expect the X360 to be a lot quieter.

    Is your xbox modded as it is an NTSC disc?
