    I hope this isnt against the rules but i want toget the above to act as a multimedia box and to play games of course.
    Im planning on getting a LDC TV and would like to be able to play HD Divx files on it.
    Im useless with electronics and i dont want to by a cheap Xbox then have to send it to someone, i just want to get it all modded up to start with.
    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    You could buy one and softmod it quite easily.
    Then stream to it wirelessly from your PC.

    You could buy an xbox from ebay and sign up for the softmod kit:

    or a quick google on 'softmod' will bring instructions. I bought an xbox from Argos at xmas and modded it myself, wasn't too difficult...

    Though if you're lucky you may be able to a pre-modded one from ebay.
