Windows 7: Xbox 360 - web browser?

Xbox 360 - web browser?

Hi everyone, I've just discovered Windows Media Centre and the ability to use my Xbox 360 as an extender. So far so good and I'm really impressed. I want to take things to the next level, I would like to be able to watch BBC iPlayer and 4od on my tv in the lounge through the Xbox 360. I've googled this and have found a number of options for WMC 2005 and Vista, like MCEBrowser, but I can't find anything for Windows 7.

Is there any way to get a web browser enabled under WMC in Windows 7 for use with my Xbox 360?

Thanks for reading!

i am not sure about the web browser bit, but if your new to WMC you should look into the MyMovies addon (free) if you plan on saving digital copies of movies on your pc to watch through the Xbox, makes a true theater like experiance. I love it.
