EMUCenter 0.5: playing games with Windows Media Center

EMUCenter 0.5
Last time we checked in on Steven Harding's EMUCenter application for Windows Vista Media Center, it was still pretty rough around the edges. But EMUCenter 0.5 seems like a pretty polished interface for launching all of your old school games on a Windows Media Center machine.

The plugin lets launch emulators such as MAME and KEGA using Media Center's 10-foot interface. You'll need to figure out how to get the games on your own. Here are a few of the updates in the latest version:
  • Now you can close your emulator from EMUCenter. Previously you could only launch applications.
  • Faster, smoother movement between games
  • Choose different appearance for different games or systems
  • Search for games by name
  • MAME automatic update now downloads in-game art

I have set up the emucenter and works like a charm, but does anyone know if there is a way to be able to connect it to the xbox 360 for gameplay, I have it connected but on my xbox it just says emucenter with no games.
