For a long time I've been using my 360 to stream files from my hard drive to my TV which is like 5 feet from my PC. I do this at night when I go to bed and want to watch something, or if I'm with my girlfriend, etc. But, my 360 red ringed and I've brought it back to life 5 times but I think it's finally dead now. I have an external hard drive which is basically a large USB stick, no power supply needed and no fans or anything. It's great, 600 gigs or so. I'm wondering if there is any other way shy of buying a streaming box (which If I did I would get a high quality 200$ one. Would rather not do that now) to stream videos from my PC to my TV. PS3 is in another room being used and I can't move it. I have a PS2 hooked into my TV but you can't do anything with the PS2 as far as streaming goes. It's a hassle to watch things from my bed on my monitor even though it's a 24 inch it's still like 15 feet away AND on an angle. I can't think of anything. I've got a headboard on my bed and I stuck my netbook inside it and I watch movies on that but it's really awkward to lay there and watch something that is literally like half a foot in front of your face. I'm willing to buy something, but only if it's cheap. I don't need AMAZING quality, but maybe somebody knows of a hidden gem or something that works great and is cheap-ish.. The TV is an old bubble screen, it's like 35-40 inches or something. I just need something I can connect my external hard drive to, and read files off it such as .avi .mkv etc. OR I need a device that can stream to my TV. I have a lot of electronics so I figure maybe somebody has a solution that I might be able to find around the house. As said previously, I can't use the PS3, though.
