Xbox vs Vista vs Netgear for music and video streaming?
I'm setting up a new home theater and the last remaining item I need to purchase is a streaming device. I have ethernet in my cabinet that is wired to a nice setup running Vista with plenty of storage that is in a different room.
What would be the best option for me to get music and video (xvid/divx, avi, mpeg, etc) to pump through my nice 1080p plasma?
1. An XBox 360 Elite?
2. Netgear EVA8000?
3. A full blown computer running Media Centre or Vista?
4. Some other option I haven't thought of?
I'm leaning toward the xbox elite because it provides a few more features to my setup but will it allow me to stream all types of video? Does it handle a music library on my network nicely?
Your help is appreciated!
