Hey, folks.  I did a bit of digging this mornin' and the outlook is so/so.  Got this report from MS website:

Q. What audio and video file formats are supported by Media Center Extender devices?

A. Media Center Extender devices support a number of audio and video file formats for play back through TV displays and home entertainment systems.

Audio file formats supported:

Windows Media Audio Standard 7 through 9
WMA standard audio may be Windows Media DRM-protected
Windows Media Audio Pro and WMA Lossless
MP3
Playback of other audio formats may be enabled by installing a compatible DirectShow decoder on the Media Center PC
Video file formats supported:

Windows Media Video 9 main profile

WMA Standard audio
Max resolution 720x480
Max bit-rate 4Mbps
WMV content may be Windows Media DRM-protected
MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 standard definition

MPEG-1 layers I and II audio
Standard Definition DVR_MS (Recorded TV) at all quality settings (Fair through Best)

It says that other audio formats may be enabled by installing a compatible directshow...perhaps the same holds true for Video?  I sure as hell ain't rippin all my avi's and .bins to wmv.  Bastards.  Even if this is the case...somebody's bound to make a hack for it.  The .bins can be mounted with daemon, solving that particular problem.  Still not as handy as XBMC, but...

I can confirm that my xbox360 cant play ANY videofile shared with windows media connect. It seems that it can only handle pictures and MP3's. Im very disapointed, and longing for a mod-chip to save the day. Im also missing native shoutcast/streaming web radio support.. and im not really impressed by the one game I could get a hold of either.. Call of duty 2.

In case there are people out there who haven't noticed:  The pictures you have on your PC can also be set as background images on the Xbox 360.  Once you have the files shared with your 360 simply go to Media>Pictures, choose the PC, digital camera, etc.. Find the picture you want to use and highlight it, then press X.  It will automatically "refresh" and be your background, but when you restart the Xbox it will take a few seconds to load the image up.

Hope I'm not too late in noticing this feature.

Here's a terrible quality picture of my 360 dashboard.

if you try to play video on the 360 from your computer (XP Home SP2 confirmed) it will not work.  If you go into the dashboard, where it says media, and you can choose from Music, Photos, Video....etc.  If you read the side panel, it clearly says, Video- Watch Movie Trailers and other videos on your **Xbox 360's Hard Drive.**  But with Music and Photo's you have the option to log into a computer.

With MCE 2005, can I play my home-authored DVD files (*.ifo & *.vob) on the 360?

I have seen this question around , on how will the X360 connect to your PC and Share the Compatible data. I heard some say that you must have a Windows Media Center PC , thats false , you can use any Windows XP based PC.

Facts Sheet
And if you have all the updates including SP2 on WinXP Pro or Home editions , you might notice an Icon called Windows Media Connect located in your Control Panel.

So i guess this will also be used with XBox360 and be able to share your data with the console.  huh.gif

ummmm...  I was able to stream music and pictures using Windows XP but I was NOT able to stream video and trust me my attempts were persistent.  Once I reformatted and installed a copy of Windows XP Media Center edition it worked no problem.

Hi to all you guys who have taken the time to supply such an extensive and mind bogling amount of information for me to read!

However, I am not technical in anyway what-so-ever and only use the 360 for games.

I can see the potential for being able to stream all my media (music and phots) to my xbox and would like to know how to do it.

I spent roughly 45minutes on the phone to xbox tech support and am still unable to connect, here is some information you might need to properly help me:

Im running a windows XP home edition with SP2
I have the latest version of Media Connect
I have added TCPs 2869 and 10243 and UDP 1900, 10280 - 10284 (inc) to my firewall exception list.
I am using a BT voyager 205 router, BT tell me that if Im conecting to XBOX live and my PC is connecting to the internet, then there is no reason why these two shouldn't link the PC to 360.
I am running the latest version of .net framework with the SP
I havw sworn at both PC and 360 and threatened them with 3 hammers of various size!
Please help me, I am now getting to the point where I am actually thinking of letting it win!

I would really appreciate any help you can give me as I am about to lse it big style!

Thanking you in advance
