    I tried but I found it a lot of hassle to get going (and even then it was hit and miss to if it worked), then I moved my media across to another machine and couldn't be bothered to set it up again.

    ^ same thing happened to me. I finally just bought a mac mini and hooked it up to my big screen. Solved all my problems

    Streaming video was really slow, and it's nearly impossible to fast forward.
    I just put videos and mp3s onto my PSP and hook it up via USB with either of PS3/360.

    I just use windows media player to stream now that the 360 has native video playback.

    TVersity was alright but beware the basic settings have it download a whole bunch of data everynight that can be Gigabytes in size!

    I use TVersity, but only for streaming Sirius radio to the 360. I tried to use it for everything else, but I found the UI to be terribly akward.
    For music from my own collection, I use Orb. Winamp Remote works too (based on Orb).
    For movies, I connect a usb drive containing the movies directly to it. Orb can stream movies too, but I find that it always plays them fine for a few minutes then starts to get out of sync and buffer way too much.

    Yeah I found the UI to be very confusing as well and the fact that it's all coded in Flash. Ugh. Thankfully there's a major update coming out for it at the end of the month apparently. The UI looks tons better and it will hopefully be easier to use.

    For those that haven't seen the new UI here's a pic:

    The only thing I use Tversity for is to watch youtube and other flash vid sites on my 360.

    I'm not sure why people still use it when the 360 can stream video using WMP now?

    You can't rewind/ff videos with TVersity. (Unless you have a pimp PC I assume?)

    Tbh, the new version is still just as un-user friendly. [​IMG]
