Help setting up streaming from Windows Media Center

I am a Newbie to XBOX

I want to stream anything from my PC screen via xbox to my TV (i.e. powerpoint presentations, picture library, and Movies and TV shows being watched on the PC)
I am running Win 7 Pro 32 bit on my Primary PC
My Sony LCD TV has 4 HDMI inputs 
In addition to a Wireless network in the home, my home is wired for ethernet.  I have one ethernet connection at the PC and one available at the TV.

Other that cables,  Is there any other hardware or software required to accomplish what I want to do?
Any other suggestions or comments?

Thank You . . .

Setting up the XBox 360 as a Media Center Extender

1. On your XBox 360 console, scroll up to My XBox

2. Scroll across and select Windows Media Center

3. Select Continue

4. Note the 8-digit set-up key that is displayed. This is the key that will associate your XBox 360 console with the computer running Windows Media Center.

5. On the computer open Windows Media Center

6. Scroll down to Tasks, and then scroll across to Add Extender.

7. Follow the prompts until you are asked for the 8-digit set-up key

8. Enter the key. Then click Next

9. Follow the prompts to complete the set-up.

BTW you will not be able to view PowerPoint presentations this way. Media Center is purely for viewing Media
