I just read about the Media Center RSS reader on The Unofficial Blog of the Unofficial Guide to Windows Vista, and hoped it would work with the Xbox 360 Media Center Extender. It does, but it takes a couple extra steps, because the Xbox 360 Media Center Extender runs under a different user account. First of all, you should make sure that the Media Center RSS Reader works correctly under Windows Media Center, and that the Extender is configured on your Xbox 360.Next, open up an Administrator Command Prompt (click the start menu, type cmd.exe into the search field, and press Ctrl-Shift-Enter). Now you need to find out where your feeds are and copy them into the Mcx1 (the name might be slightly different) user’s feeds directory

Now your feeds should show up in your Xbox Media Center under Accessories! Link
