    I read on the BBC News website t'other day that Micrsoft has announced some sort of TV adaptor for the xbox.

    Anyone know of what this is all about?..I am hoping that perhaps it includes some sort of HDD recorder

    Sounds like the kit that's planned to turn the Xbox into a Windows Media Centre terminal. It looks interesting but you'll need a PC with Media Centre installed as the OS - the Xbox is unlikely to function as a stand-alone player making it useless for just about 99% of us.

    I wish MS would either make, or license someone to produce, a 'legal' media player equivalent of XBMP on a modded box. As it stands, with that and the prog scan/hi def thing, they are almost encouraging European AV enthusiasts to mod their Xboxes.
