This may be a little off topic, but i did see discussions around Xbox and I wonder if the Vip boxes may enable similar technology. thought it might be of interest

If you're looking for a non microsoft HD media center, check out the Roku HD1000. There are a lot of 3rd party apps for it that allow streaming of dvd, mpeg2 HD transport streams, etc. There even is a MythTV frontend being built for it.

Roku has a deal on their website for remanufacturered units for $200.

You can configure it to use wireless but I wouldn't suggest it. I have it hooked to my wired 100mbit home network, and can stream 18+Mbit/s streams to it no problem.
