Is there any way to use Windows Server 2008 R2 as a media server for XBox? I want to be able to play (legally) ripped DVDs, stored on my server, without needing to install another computer or OS.

From what I understand, this is readily available as part of Home Server; but apparently Microsoft decided that no one running the (business) server software would have a reason to do this.

I suggest using "tversity" , its easy to setup, the Free addition can stream everything (except youtube etc) to your xbox with ease . The most important feature is that tversity , if setup correctly can auto transcode your vids/music so they work flawlessly on your xbox.
