Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
Hello and thanks in advance for your time. I found this stie by search and though my "problem" does not yet exist, I want some expert experienced advice and hope you can offer same, or tell me if it is not un your purvue. I am a 47 yo. new father without great funds but who loves qualilty audio and vido - have setup an awesome theater in our living room consisting of a Pani ae900u projector, 100" screen, and excellent (reasonable cost) video switching receiver and surroung speakers. Have read and heard that X-Box (besides gaming which for me will be good as my child grows) is a great interface that will allow me to show pics and video and play music over my network (hard wired) so that I can avoid having to burn DVD's or setup a computer in our living room. Do not plan to download to X-Box hard-drive, just use the "extender" I belive it is called. Since all my PC's are standard XP, I was planning to get a Media Center 05 and about to purchase a refurbished one but much easier to find a great deal with Vista Premium than Media 05. PROBLEM: I read a few months ago that Vista was a CRIPPLED VERSION of Media 05 and may not even work at all much less as well as 05 with X-Box. Is this true or can I rely on the Vista Premium for my needs?? Thanks, Peter
Unless there are aspects of Media Center itself which you require, Windows Media Player can easily be used as the source, or Windows Media Connect.
