Theoretically, it's enough bandwidth. I haven't seen any DVDs over 9  
Mbits (I could be wrong, though) But is that a steady 12 Mbits, or is  
it an average? Does this include overhead for NFS? Is there anything  
else on the Wireless? Anything else running at 2.4 GHz? A microwave?  
Are you pulling 12 Mbits when you're over near your front-end?

Xine does have some things to offer, like menus...
