Are there any tips :eek:for quickly getting into Media Center Extender functionality of my Xbox 360? When I just want to watch something, it seems like a lot of steps to navigate the UI and then wait for the Xbox 360 to connect to my HTPC eek.gif

There is a button on the remote that originally came with the 360 that will take you directly to Windows Media Center. Here is a picture, it is the WMC button at the bottom of the controller:

You can also program Harmony remotes and, presumably, the new XB1 to access this same IR code to go directly there.

Go to System, Console Settings, Start up and Shutdown, set the startup option to WMC

It will boot right into WMC
