Just a quick spread of the news incase anyone has missed it, but in the December dashboard update for the Xbox 360, Microsoft have finally included the ability to play DivX's! :clap:

This combined with the new update to Connect 360 means we can now stream all of the DivX's straight from the Mac to the 360. :arty:

Trouble is I have over 300gig of DivX TV Shows & Films on my External HD linked to my Mac, I don't think they do a Pen Drive that big yet ;)

Connect360 3.2 and the new XBox update don't work together very well when it comes to playing your music. I, like a couple of others posting on this thread http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=396447 , find Connect crashing when we try to play music although the new movie features work great

could you not just plug the external hdd directly to your 360 then? save having to use software that has to be paid for!?!

Yeah of course, but in my case all my DivX's are downloaded straight to the Ext HD (upstairs) so it would mean unplugging the HD & PSU and trudging downstairs, meaning any downloads would have to be stopped etc, or buy the software for about £12.00? For me it's a no brainer.
