    I was wondering how well does the AirPort stream HD content?

    For example my roommate uses his xbox to stream netflix HD content via wireless but our Linksys router overheats and shutdowns when HD content is streamed but not when SD content is streamed.

    Has anyone tried streaming HD content via wireless with the Airport?

    There are so many variables that it's impossible to answer your question.

    If the content is good compression (e.g., AVC) and low frame rate, then sure, you can do that. But if it's poor compression (e.g., MPEG2) and 1080p, then you will have trouble.
