I agree completely that this is a dumb set up. I just got my 360 yesterday and I have Media Connect up and running but the 500GB of video I have on my computer is not available. The music sounds great though. You can eaven stream the music while you are in any game. I dont know If you can get a patch on the pc to work for this because Media Connect is sharing Video but the 360 dosent even have an option to select video except from a Media Center PC. So if somebody can find a way to change Media Connect (or build a new app.) so it tricks the 360 into thinking that an xp computer is a Media Center Computer that would be cool.
The only other problem I can see right now with the 360 is that it should have something in the setup to resize your screen. In the dashboard (or whatever they are calling it with the 360) most of the words on the left hand side of my screen have the first letter or two cut off. And there is no adjustment in my TV's menue to correct this. It is an older TV though and I may be the only one having this problem. I guess it is about time for me to upgrade to an HDTV set.
Thanks for everything guys this is my first post but I have been using this site for a year now and I really appreciate all of the help I have found here.
Love the scene and cant wait for you guys to crack this thing I know it is not a question of IF but WHEN !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That seems a major oversight. This is one feature people would use. Thats me stuffed then I thought I would be able to do this. One thing certain I ain't throwin a load more money at a differnt OS just to do something that should already be part and parcel.
Thanks for the info

i dont want a new OS. i have all my documents and my pc configured beauatifully. chncer said it perfectly why should we have to buy something that should already be part of the package. i am sure there will be a way to fix it. i hope that there is a patch or something you can do with your pc that will trick the xbox 360 into thinking you have a media centre pc. okay to MS why would you do this, this enocurgaes hacking because people want to to stream video. i say you guys should send an update over live and fix this you guys are cheap. someone send an e-mail to MS. it is encoruaging people who dont want to even pirate games to modify their xbox just because they can't stream video from the regualr windows xp? terrible strategy i bet lots of people will be downlaoding pirate versions of windows xp media centre JUST to watch video on their 360, i would do that but i dont want to change my OS. terrible. and you think they could have supported divx format and avi. if MS truly wanted to give no reason to mod unless they were to pirate games then you think they would have included this. now people might mod just because of this.

lol.........nobody fucked your over but urself for not being informed.
MS never told anyone that it would be a media center, they repeatedly said it has media center extender built in! Which basically means (and which they have stated before) it is an extension of a media center pc. it has audio capabilities built in while video is handled by the media center pc and sent to your tv through the 360. All codecs and playback is handled by the media center pc thus eliminating the need to update the dash with a constant flow of new codecs; this also means it can playback anything ur media center pc can.
I dont understand why you cant just go get the media center xp software, install it as a second os and use that to stream the video if its that much important to you. You can even stream high def tv and shit.

You still can't do this without MCE discs even using TweakNT. So you would still need to purchase win XP MCE
