    Hi,

    Loving the 360 plugged into my Z3 projector on 92" of screen in my dedicated room.

    I also have it wired into the network and it works brilliantly with our media centre PC streaming our recorded TV into the cinema room.

    However we now have a HD plasma in the lounge and I would like to stream our medi centre PC to that too (really don't want to move the pc next to the Plasma), I think the answer would be to add another 360 (when funds allow) in the lounge and stream the media centre thru that. Can you have more than one 360 off a single media centre PC? The other advantage would be we could play games in the lounge as well.

    Also would I be able to transfer game saves by use of a memory card between the consoles? I take it I could have my xbox Live account on both machines?

    Can I put game saves on a USB memory stick and transfer data that way, or would I have to purchase a proper 360 memory card?

    Thanks for any advice.

    Yes you can have more than 1 on a single pc, wack it in a router and add it in extender manager, you'll also find a guide there too.

    yes, and as your using a wired connection you shouldn't have any problems with 2 extenders running.

    I'm currently running the 360 and original xbox as extenders (xbox 1 is poor on some digital channels though). Streaming to multiple extenders over a 54g wireless network connection is to be avoided though.

    Great news, thanks chaps.

    What about a memory card to transfer games saves from one 360 to another, or can I just use a usb memory stick?

    Memory card only. Or the HDD i.e. buy a Core for the living room then when you want to play, go and grab the controllers and the HDD from the dedicated room. Your Live account is part of your profile, so it'll travel with your profile and saves.

    One media centre PC will support 7 extenders of various sorts according to MS.
