    I have a server with all my TV and Movie collections on it and I would like to find a media center software that will allow me to connect to the server and stream the media. Must be able to play Xvid and DivX avi's. Last I knew, windows media player could not handle these formats so I didn't know if windows media center would work. I have a copy of it, but I don't want to install it and dick with all the settings if it won't work with all my AVI's. Anyone have experience with media center softwares and which this is possible with? Thanks.

    I had a modded xbox for a while. I wanted to move more toward the media center pc route. I essentially want the XBMC way things work with a PC instead.
