Ok trying to find out about 360 before I get one.

Currently I have an Xbox connected to my PC (Wired), I use XBMC and watch vids (DivX/Xvid etc) from the PC through the network no prob.

I know that 360 cant do this playing of DivX etc, but can using the 360s media centre and windows media connect on the PC allow you to stream/convert the DivX to play on the 360?

I cant find much info I have downloaded the manual form Xbox

Please help
cheers

you said your running XP home, this means you can install media connect, and it will let you stream pictures and audio, but thats it.

you need window xp media center edition for video, and it doesn't do divx/xvid anything like that unless you run a 3rd party program called transcode360.
