Ok, my question is:

Is it possible to have a copy of Windows Media Centre running in Virtual PC, and be able to get the Xbox 360 to work with it.

If any of you have done this...please inform me.

I don't know, i have heard that this kind of opperation could just take to long and painfully slow to be reasonable, but if it doesn't cost you to much money, than you might as well go ahead and try it.

It's all good.

Theoretically: Yes.
Realistically: No.

It _is_ possible, but not realistic. Why not? Because VPC runs waaaay too slow for you to want to run WinXP MCE [Media Center Edition] on it.

Hope this helps
