The Xbox 360 has been going strong with new media offereings, more games, and better titles than all the other consoles. Now they have announced a new media controller that looks to bring more solid proof that DVR functions and TV functions are destined for the set top box from Microsoft.

Xbox 360 Media RemoteThe new remote seen here as DVR style buttons including "Live TV" and "Guide". It appears to also control the basic functions of a TV with TV Power, INPUT, DISP, Mute, Ch +/-, and Vol +/-.

The remote sports a nice sleek black design as well, instead of the stark white oddly shaped predecessor.

I like the new remote, and when the TV options for Xbox hit the consumer level, I will probably drop the funds to get this new remote.
