for playing AVI's you could try installing VLC, it wont play all your files because of lack of hardware acceleration and low CPU speed, but it might play some undemanding ones.
I've found setting up Samba a bit hard and mysterious. Does your freeview box support a dlna/UPnP server ? That would let you view the media on it from pretty much anything (xbox, PC...) via a dlna client.
