Sorry to bring up such an old post, but I am a avid Xbox 360 Collector, and I have been doing some Research on the Nieves Media Extender Edge, there is Virtually no info online about it, they do not tell you anywhere that they shoved a Xbox 360 inside one, I managed to buy one a couple months ago for my collection, I was very curious if you still had these missing photos? and very importantly, I am wondering if you have any paperwork or pamphlets from those machines you could show me? I run a website documenting the xbox 360 and its bizarre items and I would love to have more documentation from the company about them. Thank you

Thank you for the photos! its so cool to see 1 more of these niche products, can you tell me where you bought it? Was it in a magazine, did you have to go to a special retailer? I cannot find any advertisements for this.
I do own one myself, I am part of a xbox collecting community, this is the 4th known niveus EDGE we have seen.
Looks like you are a busy guy atm but if you ever want to sell that please let me know!
do you have any paperwork or booklets for this thing you can get photos of?

I bought mine on eBay 7- 8 Years ago. My favorite HTPC Company back in 2010 was Niveus Media so I bought a lot of their stuff. I have no documentation, boxes.

I might be interested in selling it. DM me

Any chance you may let us know the website? Sound interesting - I've long liked this era of console tech and development :)

Thank you Rob I will message you, I am going to see if a museum wants to buy it first before i take on another :)
and this is our website Jeremy, https://wiki.alphaarchive.net/wiki/Niveus_Media_Extender_Edge
we are also on discord which is where we do all our chatting! What we do is preserve old development hardware and early builds of old video games, to explore and find cut/ hidden or other crazy things left behind by developers

This is the first time I've ever seen this topic, but that transformation looks incredible. I love the colors and the layout you've chosen. Hope you will thoroughly enjoy it!

6-8-2022: In other news.... I've been living in my garage backhouse for a few months. Meanwhile I had plumbing pipe break causing a leak / flood out in the front house. Everything is covered by insurance thankfully.

I think I'm done with the crazy multi-TV setups, Multiple HTPC's... as I get older this stuff means less and less to me (I will be 40 this October) I've been using a NVIDIA Sheild and it's been great! Clean interface, could play games, Live TV, stream from my PC + more. THE HTPC IS DEAD!!!! Might make a home theater though with a projector setup. More info later....

Been rocking Shields since 2015 as my steamer specifically for GameStream along with media apps. Used to rock a full on spare parts second gaming PC in living room before lol.

Also did WMC from 2006-2018. R.I.P. 🙏

Use Moonlight instead of official app if you're gonna do GameStream. Works better with HDR games and gets updated more and just overall better IMO

Rip windows media center with cable card indeed... :(.

Rob Black moving to a projector is amazing if you can fit a big screen. I'm in-between setups at the moment and eyeing a 120" screen w/ ust 4k 120hz 3 laser projector next year.

I just run Plex with my HDHR Prime with CableCard for the basic Xfinity package I get as part of my HOA fees

Here and at my old place luckily I never had any copy once or copy never content to worry about

I stuck with WMC for so long because everything else was more hackish and nowhere near as polished for DVR - I loved my setup WMC server upstairs > Xbox 360 extenders all over, only extender worth it imo 👌

I miss the old Sports Strip though, do you guys remember that? Where it showed you scores of games in progress and you could click it and it would take you to the tuner feed of that game? I wish Plex DVR had something like that.

I used to run a direct TV tivo 20+ years ago. I switched back to cable, tried a tivo series 3 HD but wanted more tuners so I tried a wmc setup using the infinitv 4 and loved it. However, when the tivo series xl4 came out I decided to hop back, and have used it ever since. It's trucked along marvelously and I bought lifetime service when I first got it so I've come out way ahead there. Once the tivo goes ill probably move to streaming and lean more on my blu-ray collection.
