Well I'm confused now. I have read that XBox360 can't play MPEG2 files
- unless they're served up by a media server such as Windows Media
Centre or something similar (such as PS3MediaServer). So if the
playability rests with the XBox360 which can't play MPEG2 files, how
come it can play them if they come from a media server? Sorry if I'm
being dumb here, I'm just finding the information about playing MythTV
recordings on an XBox360 a little confusing!
