Media center in living room?

  paul654 11:28 03 Nov 2005

At the moment I have a decent spec PC in the study with a 2Gb Broadband connection. From approx 4pm every day for about 5 hours I cant get on the internet due to kids hyjacking the PC for homework purposes.
I have heard a little bit about Media Center PC's and have a question..Is there a 'box' that I can put under my TV in the livling room that will (wirelessly) enable me to share my broadband connection and surf the net on my TV via my Sofa and a wireless keyboard? If such technology exists could someone please point me in the right direction..

THe XBox 360 will work as a media centre extender amongst it's many other functions. I have been to a presentation by Microsoft, and seen the kit working. I have to say I was genuinely impressed.

The problem will be getting one as I believe the launch allocation is pretty much pre ordered.

MCE's will be come far more common in 2006 (and cheaper!)
