Another project at home and the girlfriend sighs once more at my excitement ;). The new kid on the Adi block is Tversity, a free streaming server that resides on a pc and allows your content to be pushed to consoles including Xbox 360, PS3. Wii, PSP plus many others. Visit the feature site to read more – http://tversity.com/.
Here is a quick tutorial for setting up Tversity including the new X264 HD MKV files which I initially had trouble setting up. The tutorial below has been put together from various sites to help you get your setup sorted quickly.

Hope it goes well, I’m experiencing buffering problems with 54G wireless so there may be a update for that problem soon. It looks like the video resolution may need to be lower …
