I am in the process of converting a Dell Precision T3400 into a HTPC. I just bought an XBox 360 and see that if I use Windows Media Center it can connect to and play the media recorded on the HTPC. So knowing that I can now keep the HTPC in a different room other than our family room!
What I'd like to know is can an original XBox also be used in this way? We have an old XBox that we arent using and I want to be able to have access to the PVR from our bedroom on the 2nd floor and this would be easier than builiding another PC for that.
Also, do the XBox's only work with MS Media Center (Im using Windows 7 Home Premium) or would they also work with something like Beyond TV 4? Thanks!
