Question: Windows Media Center

Does anyone use Windows Media Center with their Xbox 360? I was just dinking around with my laptop and I used the 360 to connect to my computer to stream video and music. It worked really well with my Harmony remote. I can stream NetFlix movies too.

My only complaint is that it seems pretty slow. Does anyone else use this? And if so is the slowness a factor for you as well?

(Pause for Puyo to call be a noob)

Hope everyone is having a good day. And no one wants to go to Wisconsin Dells. Tear. Come on there must be something that we can do. I don't get to see you guys enough. I am willing to do almost anything except Nordic Fest.

Such a hater monster. I would like to go to the Dells (first timer here) but can't go that weekend. Would people be able to do it in August?

Good luck SB in the WSOP today.

It's kinda slow. I used it once just to try it. I have my comp directly connected to my TV. You have a laptop, just do that nub. If that isn't an option you can also use a thing called WinAmp Remote. Which lets you play any video format or music format winamp can play on your 360's regular media player.

Yeah, I do that for Twins games but I don't like ahving to move it over near my TV. I don't want to buy a 40 ft HDMI cable.

Well you can try the Winamp Remote Orb thing. I like that better, it isn't super speedy either though.
