Xbox as a media extender.

If I buy an xbox to use in the bedroom as a media extender for my Windows 7 HTPC do I need to have a gold account?  I don't want to access any outside content just live TV and my recorded TV shows.  I have an xbox that I already have a gold account on that I use for games, Netflix, etc but this second one will only be for bedroom TV.

Thanks

Mike

Hey there M! If you get a second Xbox, you can always use your same Gold profile there as well. You'll have access to all the same features as you do on your main console.

Also, I know we offer steps for streaming content from your PC to the console, which can be found in our "Stream media using Zune or Windows Media Player" guide, but as for streaming live or recorded TV, I'm afraid I'm not as knowledgeable. You may want to contact the specific provider to see if that is something you can do with their service. Let us know what you find out, thanks!
