Can you watch movies or other video from a media center extender (aka xbox360)? As there's a good chance that I will get a 360, and I'm planning on replacing my old PC sometime in the near future (toyed with upgrades but a 5 year old machine has diminishing returns there) I'm wondering what benefit I might get from a MCE machine vs. XP Pro. And has anyone built their own machine or just bought off the shelf - I see some places to sell the Media Center Edition on its own, although I assume I may have to pay some attention in building components. I'm not interested in using it for recording TV (SA8300HD covers that), and I'd rather play back through the 360 if possible rather than hook it directly to my HDTV.
