XBOX Media Centre

Wow, what can I say. I've had some time to play with this now and I'm impressed. On the wireless lan I can manage viewing digital photos and playing mp3s, albeit a little slowly. Once I plug in a wired ethernet cable it absolutely flies. I wouldn't have known about it if it wasn't for this review at Toms Hardware

I was watching a couple of DivX and Xvid video clips on it last night and was blown away. Seems to be some compatibility issues with 3vid codecs but that's not too much of a problem.

What really suprised me was the BBC news headlines on the front page and the instant audio and video track lookups.

Just need to permanently wire an ethernet cable round the room somehow. I not sure katie will let me keep the current one I've dragged across the middle of the living room :-o
