    So you are saying that your 360 plays .MKV files no problems at alll from your external drive? would be great if it does, as I need something quick and easy to play them.... how does it handle 1080p rips ???

    As since i've got the slim, its so much cooler and quieter ...

    you need to convert the MKV though you only get 2.0 sound.

    This makes absolutely no sense so explain your method clearly without leaving any parts out

    I format my 40gig external hard drive with a program called mac drive
    All my NZB's are downloaded (i.e) Avatar was 12gig. with 5.1 surround sound 1080p onto my pc then I copy to my external
    Plug my external into the usb on my 360
    goto video and watch
    simple

    edit: yeah just registered at nzbmatrix so could see your link -those are WMV rips not MKV bud

    i have been using windows 7 and divx pack for ages it works really well and does not use any real processing power on the windows 7 machine. Only drag you gotta use windows media center on your xbox to view the mkv. DTS comes out as 2 channel but DD comes out 5.1.

    got new dashboard this morning via live and MKV files still don't play, all my features aren't there like my avatar items (awards or anything i've bought). maybe update in the near future to allow play back of MKV files.

    wait till the update is in the full public domain and then a patch system be released for jtag and it's updated via flash360 or xell.

    5 minute job when it's out, "DO NOT UPDATE VIA M$ UPDATES" could kill your jtag or you'll have to reflash if your cpu is protected.

    Run your wife a nice hot bath, light some candles & pour some wine. Then you've at least 40 mins on the xbox plus a clean wife.

    Works well eh, yeah I got muddled with the MKV and MWV's lol
    The blue ray rips do look good in 1080p, Avatar was excellent
