    I have 3 movies (so far) 1 in Mpeg, 2 in .TS

    How easy and what do i need to do/have to play thru x box to my sharp LCD thru component leads?

    Thanks!

    PS... I dont actually own the X Box 360 yet as im awaiting your response... thought it might be a good way to play em if it was possible (and i get a gaming machine, i hear Project Gotham something or other is a good game! :clap: )

    There is no way to play HD files from a disc or the 360 HDD, you need to stream them from a PC with Windows Media Centre.

    There was a funky way to do it with WMV HD files by replacing files on the leaked "kiosk disc" but this has already been patched via Live and wasn't exactly an ideal solution anyway.
