Lots of questions there mate that would come up with a search but I will try and help you out.

AVI = You will need somthing like Transcode360 (free) to convert files 'on the fly' to play on MC

Wireless = Yes it will stream but can get choppy so wired is prefered, pictures will be the same if not better on the 360

Set Up = Should be easy but depends on how much research you do, these forums have been great for me setting up a MCE PC recently.

HDTV = Yes you can stream HD movies to the 360 as long as you are using the correct cables from the 360 :) but again wired is better than wireless.
 
cheers mate , when you say choppy do the break down ? and cables needed what are they ?

again thanks mate

Yea the picture/audio can break up especially on HD movies/clips.

Do you have a 360 premium?? ok if you do if not you will need either the component or VGA cable to get hd on your screen.
