Hardwired until Wireless N is supported.

Wireless is supported, but you wont get very good results if you're streaming HD, not enough bandwidth at the moment.

That is kind of what I assumed. I have purchased most of the equipment and really am geeked out about the game play on it at this point have some HD DVD's in the queue from Netflix so looking forward to that.

I finally got the new vgapatcher for the original xbox1 and it looks great at 1080i as well.

Was wondering if there was any update - if it could play h.264 .ts files
I record AVCHD from the Hauppague HD-PVR and would love to use the X360 for playback.

I always use the PS3 for AVCHD from the Hauppauge, but...

Xbox 360: now with H.264, MPEG-4, PlaysForSure

Color us tickled, but we totally missed some of the finest points of all in Microsoft's Xbox 360 spring Dashboard update: they're totally tricking out the video (finally!). No longer will we be confined to our very least favorite video codec, WMV -- the new update will enable Windows Media Connect or Media Center streaming MPEG-4 up to 8Mbps, H.264 up to 15Mbps

Have you tried it?

15Mbps? Bluray rips are up to 40Mbps...

See cgott's post. He's using the Hauppauge for AVCHD. It maxes out at 13.5MBps.
post #161 of 169
Ahh.

Sorry Clarence/cgott.

It's a bit annoying though. It just doesn't have the grunt? It can play HD-DVDs.

I kinda want one as I have the HD-DVD drive (2 in fact..they were cheap), and a fair few HD-DVD's, but it's always been a bit limited as a media player - not enough compatibility.

I don't (yet) own the X360, wanted to see if it'll play the files before buying.
Can someone PM me their email so that I can send a short 10 sec clip for them to test. (approx. 3-15MB - let me know how much your email will allow) as the AVS doesn't allow attachments > 0.5MB (and the smallest I can capture is 3MB)

thx

I've got the x360 and the Hauppauge.

Let me go test.
post #164 of 169
Great - thanks.
post #165 of 169
I didn't have any luck.

I copied a Hauppauge .m2ts file to a usb drive. X360 saw other files, but no .m2ts

Changed Hauppauge to save as .TS - same deal... not recognized by x360

Inserted DVD with AVCHD that plays perfectly on PS3. X360 saw it as Mixed Media Disc and wouldn't play the files in the STREAM folder.

thanks Clarence
Is there any streaming that'd work
(e.g. Tversity? or MCE '05)?

Yes, MCE is what I use to stream with the x360. Works great.

With the Hauppauge, also look at the WD HD player. Works great.
post #168 of 169
Cool - so the MCE streams to the X360 the Hauppaugge .ts files w/o problem? any stuttering or other problems?
post #169 of 169
Hey guys,

I am trying to get a .ts file playing on my 360 through my media pc extender. Specifically I am trying to get files to play in their native ts format rather than having to convert them.

If I convert them to avi files the 360 plays them fine, but in their native ts format I get a 360 cannot play these files due to a codec error. Is there a way to get this to work?

I am not the author of the ts files - they are episodes of Top Gear I download from the net.

Cheers, any help is appreciated.

to sample these files go to finalgear.com
