Windows Vista Build 5456.5 vs. Xbox 360 Extenders

For those of you on the Windows Vista Beta through connect.microsoft.com (as opposed to the Consumer Preview Program), Build 5456.5 was released earlier this afternoon.

For those that Xbox 360 as a Media Center Extender with Windows Vista, you should note the following:

Support for Xbox 360 as a Media Center extender is not included in this Vista build. In order to continue using the Xbox 360 as a Media Center Extender with Vista, please remain on Beta 2 (build 5384). Support for the Xbox 360 as an Extender will be available in a future Vista build.

It does not appear that this build will be available for the Consumer Preview Program. This can be confirmed here, where it is stated that:

When you register for the Customer Preview Program you will receive the Beta 2 release plus Windows Vista Release Candidate 1 (RC1) — the next major pre-release of Windows Vista — when it is available later this year.
