Hi Im not sure, about part of the question?

The issue that you are having with compression times, is the same that Im having. All averages seem to indicate that the it is about 1hr per 10min clip. so if you are doing 60mins than the average for most macs, DP 2.5ghz or greater would be about 6hrs +... Of course that does depend on other issues such as drives being used etc..

The part of the question that I dont understand is the "streaming" issue to the xbox. I have an xbox and didnt know you could strream to it?? If you want to view it, than you can copy to it but I thought it would have to be thru a DVD or CD. The other issue is you are trying to create WMVfiles which are pretty big files, FCP doesnt support WMV files, their are conversion programs out there like flip4mac etc.. They can convert files back and forth. Very time consuming and not work the time, unless you have a very specific reason. QT filese are much easier to work with and are the basis for MACs.. Im not an expert as you may see I ask for help from the gurus here often. If you are interested in archiving tv shows etc. The best way is to just burn the shows directly to DVD using any of the DVD direct burners on the market. Some of them will not allow you to copy shows that maintain a copyright like macrovision etc.. But there are workarounds.. One that is used often is that you can use your camcorder to copy to DV and than use the same camcorder to go to the burner...

Just a thought...

Ok, ... I checked the xbox and you can stream by connecting a PC.. So not sure about the Mac now.. It does require software on your PC, which Im just assuming although I could be wrong, its not available for a MAC, you know the microsoft phenomena..
