  • Im curious.. can i use my Windows MC tuner card under Home Server to stream video to the MCE device (Xbox 360)....Might take it out of my other machine and have Windows Home Server do the dirty work if this configuration works...

  • By default all you could do under that scenario is use your WHS as a file store for run of the mill video files that the 360 could play and have it treat the WHS just like any other network PC with video shared.

    I suspect though that you are looking for a more seamless interface such as what is provided by the 360 when acting as an extender to a MCE box and you want to have that kind of slickness not only for your regular wmv content but also your recorded tv... one method you *could* do with some work would be to configure your MCE box record to a network share on the WHS box, thus drastically increasing the amount of storage available to the MCE box.
