    I'm looking for a box that I can put in my living room that can stream video/music wirelessly(801.11g) from XP Professional, or preferably from any SMB share. I don't want a computer. Anyone got any suggestions? Will Windows Media Extenders work? I don't have any Media Center PCs, just Professional.

    Squeezebox will let you do the music , you can install their OS slimserver from sourceforge and use it to stream between computers. As far as video you would have to use a media extender. I don't have any real experience with any that work right off the bat.
