I am afraid I can only answer question 1.
MCE is the only way of getting movies played on your 360. :(
You can use media connect to play music and view photo's though from xp.

Thanks for your reply.
Connecting MP to xbox 360 is not so important as my laptop sits next to the my xbox 360.

So its just my other questions that require a response.

Cheers Mr E

    Your m/c specs are on the low side of what MP requires to run (see support) but saying that, the only way is too install and check it out for yourself, after all it does not cost you anything. Do not believe your tuner natively supported, so would need to be added.

    Your second question, no MP does not at this moment support PIP.

    If you do not try, you will not know 8)

    What do you mean

    Thanks for the response, but I don't understand the statement below.

    Await tv tuner

    Thanks for the last message it this makes sense.

    I guess it is question of whether is it worth while installing MP as my tv tuner shall have capabilities to record tv and listen to radio.

    My pictures and music are fairly organised on my desktop pc which I may transfer to my laptop for viewing on my HD TV. Without MP I could use picture view and media player to view / play these files or alternatively I could just keep the existing arrangement and views / play these through my XBOX 360 wifi from my desktop pc.

    I shall likely give it a whirl and see what I think.
