My Own "Geek TV"

Well, I usually watch videos from channel9 or other tech videos online. I usually download them and try to watch them on my machine when I have time. Tonight, I had an idea.

Get the video in my Public/Video folder on Vista Ultimate. Watch it through my TV using Xbox 360 as the extender.

Right now I’m watching, “Steve Teixeira and Bill Dunlap: Visual C++ Today and Tomorrow” on my TV in my living room, and it looks/sounds great. Here is a challenge the the IT guys reading my blog:

Lets set this up on the TV above the fridge.

Set up a share to dump tech vidcasts to, and then have them play non stop in the break room.

With this new setup now, Netflix, and getting shows off the internet, I’m not sure I need cable anymore 🙂
