My HTPC is fried and I don't have the time/energy to build a new one right now. I simply need a way to stream my bluray rips from my computer in the upstairs office to the tv room in the basement. Would an xbox 360 extender work for this? Or would I be better off with something like a popcorn hour.
The blurays rips are mkv with flac but I only have about 20 so far so I can re rip to some other format if necessary.
I've tried to do some research and found that mp4 may be a better format. I don't need the hd audio formats so if I can just rip the video stream and dd or dts and stream to xbox 360 I'd be happy. However, the few guides I've read indicate you have to recompress the audio to 2 channels??? Is this true?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
