    Not eally tried it. But if any program will be able to do it then XBMC would be the only one i would think could. I know it can play movies and music stored on your PC. It can also play shoutcast internet radio stations. Not really sure about thinkgs like streaming YouTube to it though. Also look into TVersity or ORB. They may work with an Xbox. I know they work with the 360 and can do internet TV and stuff. I just really have no use for them so i have not studied them much. And all mentioned programs are free.

    in order to connect to the internet you need a few things. Like a CAT5 crossover cable to connect the xbox to your PC/router. You also need to set up the network settings on your xbox correctly. Fort XBMC to share things with your PC you need to set up a home network with the network setup wizard in windows. You also need to share any drive or folder you want it to have access to. The share option is in the folder or hard drive options (depending on which you choose to share)

    It connects to the home network to stream media from the PC. There are network settings in XBMC that you should set up for accessing the internet.

    and so you know, shoutcast are internet radio stations. they have tons of them in every music catagory you could want.
    you can try it out on your PC and see what you think. Just go and download the free version of Winamp, it has shoutcast on it as well.
