    I'm thinking of buying an xbox 360, but not just for playing, instead is for watching some multimedia content from my pc o laptop. I'm tired of connecting all the times that I want to see a movie, my laptop to my lcd tv. It seems that the xbox360 can connect to my pc and from then reproduce the movie. Its that true? also, there is a remote control... can I use it to put pause, play, etc from the video that I'm playing from my pc? because, stand up every time to put pause in my laptop is a pain in the ass (sorry).

    thanks a lot guys

    You could buy an old Xbox instead and get a mod chip put in it.

    That way, you can FTP movies, music, pictures, etc. to the HD of the Xbox and then, using a program like Xbox Media Center, watch them all on the TV.

    Yes you can, but you can just use the 360 control that comes with the 360.You can only stream WMV videos on WMP11 if you want to use different formats use another program I forgot what it was called

    thanks!
    The program that let you play other format through your pc is Tversity. Even if I use that program to stream dvix movies, can I use the xbox 360 remote control to put play or pause with it?
