Wireless movie streaming?
Probably not. First of all, to stream movies to an Xbox 360 requires a PC running Windows Media Center Edition 2005. If your PC is just running Windows XP, you can still stream pictures or music but not video (streaming video is only streamable through the Media Center Extender interface).
Second, 802.11g is barely sufficient to stream standard definition video, and not sufficient at all to stream high definition video. Microsoft suggests that you use 802.11a for wireless video streaming, but depending on the strength of the network and any possible interference even that may not be enough. (While 802.11g and 802.11a are both rated at 54Mbps, 802.11g has a lower practical throughput due to keeping compatibility with 802.11b devices. 802.11a devices are also less susceptible to interference as they run at 5GHz rather than 2.4GHz like 802.11b/g, cordless phones, etc.)
If you want to stream video to your Xbox 360, you really should use a wired connection on a 100Mbps switched network.
i have a multimedia pc, and i wanted to have whole house wireless a/v without spending big $$$ and without tons of crap all over each tv. i went on ebay and bought a uhf transmitter it has 3 rca (red/yellow/white) connections in the back of the unit. works great. any tv can pick up the signal. and it transmitts about 500 ft. plus it was under $50 i just hooked the pc up to it and away i went. it is default set to ch 19 but you can adjust to a diff channel.
