I was wondering if you could stream video from a HD to your TV somewhere else (using something like WD Live HD) and at the same time be playing a game...?
Is that possible or no? The movies and games would be on separate HDs, but on the same computer (intel dual or quad core).
I'm wondering to see if i really have to build a separate HTPC-type system or not... Not interested in recording of TV - just playing my recorded DVDs/BluRays off my computer (i have a 6 year old...don't really want him touching BluRay discs by accident and maybe scratching/breaking them.... )
Anybody know anything if it's possible or asking too much...
It is certainly possible but there is the risk of slowing your gameplay. Why not use an old PC as a file server that you hide away in your basement? Better yet use WHS as your OS. Then you could use an Xbox360 at your TVs rather than a WD Live HD.
Tv and computer are on other side of room from each other in basement....
Xbox 360 = $300 VS $1xx for WD Live HD....
Already have Windows 7 i could use...why do i need WHS? Can't 7 be used instead...?
Would it matter if games and movies would be on different HDs? Or whether the movie HDs are located on something like the DLink DNS-323 2 bay NAS and connected to a router; router connected to internet/PC/WD Live box...?
I'm thinking using something like the DLink NAS would basically remove anything to do with the pc since it would be separate and linked via router...?
