I could just put them on my laptop and plug it into the tv... but is there a way to stream the movies to my TV....mpeg/divx and such types. <br>I have an AEBS and N protocol card. <br>Do I need Airport Express (no) or Apple TV?<br><br>[image][/image]
OK... maybe a PS3. I just bought the Sony 52" Bravia w-series LCD. Wow! What a TV.<br>I need a Blu Ray player too, and wanted a Sony to keep everything the same family.<br>But they all get crappy reviews. Slow load times being the #1 complaint.<br><br>I could get a PS3 and have a gaming console that can surf... stream and play BR mvies and.. oh yeah... games.<br><br>I was thinking about an Apple TV... but how would I get my movie files into iTunes.... just drop them in the folder where alll the iTunes-purchased movies would reside? And iTunes wouldn't play those formats.<br><br>So many hurdles.....<br><br>[image][/image]

What kind of movies are you planning on streaming? Things bought from the iTunes store? If it's DRM'd stuff you'll have to stream it (and an AppleTV might be the best way to go) ...if the files aren't DRM'd you can just put them on a flash drive and copy them to the PS3. The PS3 only has a 802.11G card in it so you won't be able to stream HD stuff to it very well unless you connect it via ethernet. <br><br>Just note that you have to have the files encoded in a fairly limited number of codecs that work with the PS3. DivX and XviD work ...so do certain AVC encoded AVIs (h.264) <br><br>zweisoft<br>
