Coming November 7th? That's tomorrow...

Rumor is more will be revealed Sunday during ABC's Extreme Makeover: Home Edition and ESPN's Sunday Night Football. Sean's teasing us!

Ahhh - here we go... Info from the Seattle Times.

Microsoft is using the campaign to pitch Media Center Edition, a version of Windows that has digital TV, scheduling and recording capabilities and a TVlike remote control. It's installed on PCs with TV tuners that start at about $1,000.

Also new this fall is a companion device called Media Center Extender. It's basically a small box with a radio antenna that sits on a TV. It lets users wirelessly get digital media from a PC — including recorded movies and TV shows — to sets elsewhere in the home.

Intel is pitching its Pentium 4 chips with hyperthreading, a technology that boosts PC performance during data-intensive tasks such as digital-media processing.

Oh p4's are so yesterday, Now its all about the Dothan Proc's. Low power low heat High performance. DFI, ( has a new micro ATX form factor Mainboard that uses the Dothan chips. I going to look into this more. Mini-ATX has only one PCI slot and on board video, its too small for a high performence Media Centers because you need AGP to have a grapics card able to handle DVD decodeing and MPEG2 decodeing so your proc isnt expected to do everything all the time. So a Micro-ATX with 4 PCI and 1 AGP should be perfect for the job. More info on this vary sexy DFI Micro-ATX can be found here (
