reporting that Intel's line of Viiv media center
, set to launch at CES this week, will not feature support for Digital Media Adaptors. According to Alex at eHomeupgrade
, this also means no Media
Center Extender or Xbox 360 streaming support.
Ugh, I hope the other features Intel will unveil make up for
this lack of functionality (apparently it will be added in June in a Viiv 1.5 release). We'll have all that news and
more in our CES coverage later this week.
Update: Alex updated to mention he's not sure exactly what
Digitimes means by the statement, which I have to agree with, it's really vague, especially since we don't know exactly
what Viiv is all about yet. Like Windows Media Extender would, in my mind, be a function of the Media Center OS, so why
wouldn't the PC's be able to do it, unless there is more to it than that, I guess all will be revelaed in a few days.
