Is it possible to use Windows 7 as a media center extender?

I have a media server running Windows 7 in my living room. I have a nettop running Windows 7 in my bedroom. I have an xbox 360 running as a media center extender to my media server so I can watch live tv and access all my music/photos/movies/etc libraries from my media server. On my nettop, I can access music/photos/movies/etc as libraries on a network drive, but I can't watch live tv because it's not an extender. Is there a way to provide this functionality? I've read somewhere that when the Xbox 360 runs as an extender, it's a special mode of remote desktop. Is this true, and would it be possible to mimic this on my nettop?

"There is no way to allow another computer access to your live TV via Media Center.

I know this isn't what you want to hear, but unfortunately it's the way Microsoft have designed it!"
