Hi All

Looking for some advice. I am thinking of installing XBox Media Centre on my windows pc to be used as well a media centre for my big screen. From what I can tell this will give me access simply to movies and tv shows etc.

Anyone have any advice or used it before?

Thanks

Is your pc connected directly to the big screen or well you be streaming it from the pc to another device

I am looking at directly connecting my touchsmart 610 via usb to HDMI converter.

I am also happy to buy some streaming device to connect via wirless.

This is all new to me :)

Are you planning on storing stuff locally? If not, I suggest a wired ethernet connection over wireless. Less jumpy streaming. Other than that, jump on Gizmodo or Lifehacker and search up their guide to setting up XBMC. It covers pretty much everything.

My wife is a computer nerd and set all ours up. Works a treat. I could ask her to call you if you like. Unfortunately I'm a computer incompetent and all I can add is that if we want to watch a film or TV series, it just magically appears.
