Three of my four xbox's are set to boot straight into the media center app.
I tried for awhile to get it to play them and gave up on it. Plus I hate WMC and the fact that it clamps onto things even after they have been deleted and you literally have to delete the library file. The HTPC I setup on the other hand plays anything I throw at it and even plays RARed movies.

My xbox will probably RRoD soon anyways ha.

that's kinda why i bought a DM1Z - tired of 360's bad ability with MKV files (especially subbed ones - like srsly, such bad track handling). shared folders with vids -> Laptop->HDMI out->HDTV->OHNOES360THISWORKS

My 360 slim is more like...

70% Netflix/Hulu
20% Rock Band 3
10% Media Extender

My PS3 gets uses as a Blu-Ray player, but I don't watch many anyway now that I have Netflix. As far as playing .MKV on the 360 goes, I use TS Muxer to convert them into a format the 360 can play, takes all of 20 seconds per file.

And no transcoding needed just plays them thats what my 360 is used for now days i dont game very much on it just watch movies on it from my network.
It works the same for both consoles, they both can use WMC to stream media to each console. Both can play mkv files once you have the codec pack installed.

This. They're afraid if they turn their 360 console off, it will never turn back on again

So true! And Xbox power consumption is enormous, over 100W during DVD playback, compared to 20W of standard DVD player.

Some of us have the new slim version which is quite quiet and much less power hungry. My PS3 fat is louder than my Xbox slim (although I liked the PS3 Netflix UI better). I use only Netflix and Hulu for TV/movies, so as soon as Hulu was available on Xbox that's all I use now.

It's called having decent speakers with a sub woofer.
