    Having had great results so far with XP media centre, Transcode 360 and my Xbox 360 I have hit my first snag.

    I have had it playing DivX and XviD flawlesslyand even using the hack for transcode got it playing HD movies in .MKV format, but one thing has stumped me so far, and thats movies using the new .x264 video codec. I can get them to be recognised and they even start transcoding but after around 30 seconds they stutter then stop and transcode 360 tells me its finished.

    Has anyone managed to get these to play and can offer any help?
    Cheers.

    OK not sure if anyone is interested but I thought I would update you.

    It seems Transcode can process x264 encoded HD movies, but you need a pretty powerful PC to do it.

    As soon as I networked my main desktop (Athlon 64 3700 with a gig of ram) and got my laptop to force the desktop (athlon xp mobile 2400 and 512 meg ram) to do the transcoding they worked fine.
