I am afraid not , the xbox 360 is used as an MCE extender. So it requires MCE to stream video and even then it will only be saved tv and wmv files (no divx or xvid). If you have XP you can stream mp3's and look at photo's via media connect.

Is there any hope that MP will get to support MCE in the short term future (within 6 month)?

Cuz i got meself a 360 and being like i am, want the most out of it.
So i got XP media center ed. install on me labtop in the hope that i would be able to stream vidz and TV to the box... Sadly i havent come to that stage yet cuz MC does not support my TV card, and it being square Microsoft making it, i dont see anyway for it to atualy using it.

IF there is any devs currently working on this, gimmy a PM and il happely help test :)

MC (media connect I presume) is free, it is only XP MCE (XP media centre edition) which costs money.
MC is now included in WMP 11, so you should just install this instead, it should then allow you to connect to your music and photo's although I have not used this method personally.
