Well, I can't believe I didn'ty do it sooner. I don't care that I now have 30m of Blue patch cable running down the hall to the study. Apart from the obvious benefits like playing files from other PCs on the network thus saving the internal Xbox HDD for game storage, I'm stoked to be able to stream in my favourite web radio stations to the stereo in the lounge! I will be getting into Kai link soon too. Any other cool uses for a conected xbox? ie. Where is the web browser? Can you map network drives, or do you have to browse to the share each time? When playing streams from the net, it takes about 10 times longer to buffer than on the PC. Is this a difference between winamp and the media center?
