Entertainment 2.0: Episode 37-PC vs. Extender: Part 1

This debate has been raging on since the invention of Extenders, so it’s no surprise to me that the panel went a bit long.

The Digital Media Zone

This week is the first half or so of a two part episode. We had so much fun with our guests Josh Shenkle and Ben Drawbaugh that we ended up going for over two hours. This week we talk about the PC vs. Extender models for running Media Center and all of the things that factor in to making a decision on how to run your setup. In this first of two parts, we talk about the PC side of the argument and some of the good and bad that you get with connecting your HTPC directly to your HDTV or viewing area.
