So do you get video/music content from the PC to the other components through the XBox?
Ya, I can stream music and videos to the Xbox but I just use my HTPC to play videos and if I listen to music I'll just use my main rig.
Xbox is mainly used for games and playing my HD-DVD's, and occasionally for Netflix.

I only hope Bridgette comes with a remote control for volume, source selection, repeat, fast forward, rewind, stop with the mandatory mute button. Oh and please keep fresh batteries in both devices !

The following relatively cheap Western Digital units are worth a look
WD TV Live
WD TV Live Plus

I have the first connected to a Sony Bravia and Onkyo SR608 AV receiver.
Both have Lan and direct HDD connectivity. The Plus also supports direct Internet streaming.

Thanks mjf!
That system looks like it does exactly what my D-Link DSM-520 does, but maybe the software is newer and not as clunky. I will definitely check it out!
