Hi Ppl. I have a Posh new 64bit Ubuntu computer with one of the latest distro's on it,works loverly.this is in my front room.In my beroom I have an older box with Xbutu 10.10 installed which I want to use to play movies into my telly that are stored on the ubuntu box which is connected to the same sky router.
I tried ubuntu before xbuntu to achieve this ,which worked with "connect to server",but the bedroom machine doesnt have the Ooomph to play movies without clipping the video part.
I was hoping Xbuntu would free up enough resources to enable the playing of movies, and it is indead more suitable,but I cant work out how to connect to the files on the ubuntu machine.
I have googled myself silly trying to resolve this,I am sure it cant be that hard can it?

Thanx for reading this
