    I imagine so.

    You need to be signed in Live to play XviD's though.

    ive been doing this since the 360 started supporting divx/avi with no probs at all except thinking on occaisonally the odd codec isn't supported so movie wont play this as been rare though i havent tried wmv-hd from usb stick as i only have a 2gb one but again have had no trouble use a ext-hdd formated with macdrive 7 plenty info about this on here mate. if im right oggy you dont have to be signed whilst watching xvids mate but you have to download the update as a one off if you havent allready done so.

    No, the update is a sly one, you get the media codec in the update, so it recognises it - but will not play if not signed into Live.

    Yea its a bit sly that. I use TVersity - Home and access all my media directly from the pc. Its pretty very easy to do.

    I watch films all the time from my USB stick and i've never had to sign into live yet mate all i had to do was download the codecs first before i could play them.
