What is best media streamer to connect MCE PC to my LCD TV



Hoping someone can help. I have just purchased a new JVC 37" HD screen for the living room. My sound system is a Bose lifestyle 30. I am looking to stream music, digital media and sky TV from my HP MCE PC in the bedroom upstairs. I am looking to do away with the Sky + box and DVD player in the living room.

I am getting a little confused with all the jargon I have read! I hear the X-Box 360 would be a good option but I just read that it will not record or pause TV. So with that in mind I don't see how it can be a true media centre extender. Also would it be best to go wireless or wired. I am looking for maximum quality. The xbox did seem like a good idea because you still have the DVD drive.

One last thing. Is it possible to use the LCD panel as a PC monitor so I can surf the net. If it was I could do away with the laptop also?

Any help or guidance would be much appreciated.:lease:
