    It's fully covered in the Sticky at the top of the forum.

    Basically you just need windows media player 11. A wireless gaming router or Xbox360 gaming adapter or a wired conection via your router.

    What sniper in Lost ? :eek:

    I understand that a torrent is a method of sharing files. Yes plenty of valid torrents around, Sky have rolled out a torrent feature and BBC are looking into it. As the post did say 'Lost in HD' thats why I posted 'torrents are bad' :nono: Well, whatever you do in your own home is up to you. ;)

    Does the video play in windows media player? If not then you'll need to download the right codec. I have FFDShow installed, works with just about any video format.

    For HD .TS files you only need to install HDTVPump on your PC and there is no need to transcode.

    Have you tried searching the forum? because I am sure tversity has been posted about many times and it would be far quicker to search through old threads instead of waiting for someone here to post old info.

    The HD-DVD drive is for HD-DVD's only, you dont need it to stream or playback HD files.

    Also, why would you want to convert files to WMV when you can stream Divx files already?

    Use a piece of freeware called Encode360, takes time to encode but works fine for me.
