What Should I use to Stream video from PC to TV?
I currently have an XBOX 360 hooked up to my tv in the living room, and the XBOX is hard wired to the router that is hooked up on my pc. I can easily stream video from my pc to the XBOX360, and I really enjoy the ease of use, menu's, ability to also stream photos and music, etc. The only problem is that it will not do hd file formats native to the XBOX360 such as .mkv and .264 files.
Now I want to be able to stream video from the pc to the tv in my bedroom. I know I can do it if I buy another XBOX360, but I will still be unable to stream native HD video through the pc to the XBOX360. I am looking to buy the best solution, what would folks recommend? Does the PS3 have good and easy to navigate menu's to navigate through files, etc.? Will it play DivX, and HD PC file formats? I am also starting to see BlueRay players that claim to stream content from the PC wirelessly. Does anyone have any experience with this or any other options that I am not thinking about?
It seems like a streaming box to do what I am looking for should be more common as a stand alone box with gaming and Blueray not included. Is getting a $300.00 PS3 my best option although I am not really interested in gaming or Blueray?
I checked online at FutureShop, but din't find many other affordable options that made sense.
