If you are into lowering your power consumption and bills - this is about the worst idea yet. The dang XBox consumes so much energy you might was well leave you microwave running all day - not really - but to have to run a power hog like it to watch TV? There has to be a better way.

Compare the xBox's 160+ watts usage to something dedicated to streaming TV line the AppleTV which uses 17 watts, you have to wonder how this makes sense. I get what Microsoft is trying to do, it is just that there is better technology to do it with.
