Hi all
I heard that the Windows 7 beta will play Freeview in the native windows media centre.
Does that mean that it will stream to an Xbox 360? Has anyone tried this?
And if so, which piece of hardware does the grunt work decoding the signal, the pc or the xbox?

It does work but currently there are some issues with dropouts that Microsoft are aware of.

Yep it streams to both my 360's.  My HTPC gfx card is old and sad but the 360 streams Freeview/HD without a problem, it looks great.
