To celebrate and plug the release of its Extenders for Windows Media Center, Microsoft is running a Digital Makeover Contest. The $10,000 prize package will include a new Windows Media Center PC, the aforementioned Extenders, a flat-screen TV, and wireless home network.

“Connected entertainment is all about enjoying high quality digital content both on your PC and on TV sets around the home,” said Ron Pessner, general manager for Windows Media Center. “We are excited to bring that vision to life today with the technology behind Windows Media Center and Media Center Extenders.”
