Hi All,

I own a DVD collection of over 200+ DVDs and have them safely backed up as ISOs on HHDs as well. I am growing rather lazy to pop in a dvd in the xbox everytime I want to watch a movie and have grown to like the convinience of watching my DVDs from the ISOs/Alcohol120/and my PC.

What I want to do is use my Xbox as a Media Center Front end and play on my Xbox the ISOs from over a network from my PC. Can this be done?

I have an un modded Xbox and am a newb to modding it but I have years of PC Building/Modding/Tweaking under my belt which I can use to quickly learn regarding the Xbox.

I would appreacite any and all responses and If a solution is possible, Ill be more than happy to 'support' the scene.

Install a modchip or a softmod and run Xbox Media Center, then stream your images via SMB shares.
