Vista Extender

Ok, im trying to watch my videos that I have on my terrabyte drive on my
pc on my tv in the other room. I know I can get an extender but what
extender is the best out there? I would like to watch High def/blu-ray
quality discs w/o loss of performance or video quality. I know some of
the reviews say xbox 360 but then it says if your wathcing movies 360
might not be the best bang for your buck.....very frustrating what say
you????

Xbox 360 is the best extender out there, although louder than other
extenders. No extender can stream HD DVD, Blu-ray Discs or DVDs over the
network.

The reviews probably say the Xbox 360 isn't the best bang for the "buck"
because it used to be more expensive, and a regular DVD player is much
cheaper. As far as I'm aware the 360 is the cheapest extender out there.

"No extender can stream HD DVD, Blu-ray Discs or DVDs over the
network."

If you've got videos on your PC you can stream them, the Xbox 360 support a
number of formats including WMV, XVID and DIVX.

The Xbox 360 has a DVD drive, and an HD DVD addon drive that can play DVD or
HD DVD *discs*.

Re: Vista Extender

ok Paul, thanks for your help on this, so the way I understand it, he
and Bly ray are out unless I stretch an hdmi cable through the attic.
But as far as he goes I thought "HD" lost the battle with Blu-Ray, the
format will now be Blu-ray not hd if that's the case then what?
