Microsoft Introduces $10,000 Digital Home Makeover Contest

Did you know that the Windows Media Center team is conducting a Digital Home Makeover Contest to celebrate the consumer availability of new Extenders for Windows Media Center? For one lucky winner, a makeover team will transform their disconnected digital lifestyle into a home entertainment dream with a prize package totaling up to $10,000!!!

The Digital Home Makeover Contest is designed to address the real challenges people face when adopting today's digital lifestyle. Today's consumers have a wide variety of digital content in their homes-thousands of digital pictures, MP3's, TV shows and movies- and homes may have dozens of devices which allow people to interact with and enjoy this content. But wouldn't it be nice if digital media could be seamlessly viewed and accessible around the home?

The winner of the Digital Home Makeover Contest will receive what they need to take control of connecting their entertainment options and start enjoying content from room to room, anywhere in the house. Microsoft is accepting entries in the form of two-minute videos that illustrate a contestant's disconnected digital lifestyle and why they need a digital home makeover. Entries will be accepted through May 2nd at http://www.windowsmediacenter.com/contest

The real problem is Microsoft media centre doesn't support any of the free to air channels in your country nor does it provide the guide.

DVB-T MPEG4 (h.264) with HE-AAC audio and an EPG using MHEG5.

The number one challenge for me is price... Media Extenders are neat, but overpriced. You can do the same thing with some good wires for almost nothing. It's just not 'digital quality'.
