    So I usually use my old xbox with XBox Media Center to play media files from my PC... until tonight, after a good 5 or 6 years it died (RIP).

    I did some research and read a lot of really good stuff about the Popcorn Hour media players so I ordered one :o It was pretty pricey but apparently it will play anything you can throw at it. Anyone know anyone who owns one?

    360 is hooked up to my PC monitor. Plus this will play any file format without having to screw with anything.

    You can rip a BR and play it... I'm thinking if you had a bluray drive in the PC you could play it like that.

    I went and put a 160GB hard drive in it yesterday :D Drive only cost me $50.

    Basically this thing will play ANY kind of media file. Things the 360 can't play. You can point it at an .iso file or a .img file and it'll play whatever is in it. It's awesome. I'm setting up my Sirius to stream to it now :bigup:
