Windows 7: XBOX 360 and Windows 7 is a no go

XBOX 360 and Windows 7 is a no go

Hi,
I'm on Windows 7 64 bit.
My xbox 360 doesnt' register as a media extender.
When I go into network and sharing and do a network mapping I can see my XBOX 360. But I can't access it and it never popup as a Media extender.
When I try to reach my computer via a pc to xbox 360 on my 360 it can't find my computer.
I've try to disable firewall and antivirus (avast) but still no luck.
Trying to force the discover of media extender via Mediaplayer doesn't work either.
Has someone get this issue ?
Thx in advance

PS: Sorry for my bad english, it's not my native tongue.

Hi,

I have the same problem with my Xbox 360.
The Windows Media Center menu doesn't detect my PC although my firewall is off.
The 360 appears into network and sharing when I do a network mapping.

Is there anything else to do ?

I think that maybe there is an incompatibility issue with 64 bit version because it worked very well on Win 7 32bit RC.

That's what I used to think, 64 bit could be the problem.
I m too lazy to make a clean 32 bit install

But, I don't understand why it worked one time.
During the first install of the 360, Media Center found the xbox. And never works after.

Do you use Homeplug ?

Im running Windows 7 and my xbox works as a media extender fine, to the best of my knowledge I haven't made any alterations/modifications to my '7' install, this may be a foolish question but have you 'the guys having issues with 64bit 7', gone through the whole set up of media centre on both the PC and xbox?

No. I use wifi between xbox and modem-router, an ethernet cable between modem-router and PC.


When I do a network mapping, all devices appear but there is an interrupt green line between the xbox and the router (instead of continuous line).
In properties, access to xbox is authorized.

Working fine here on Win7x64, try going into MC setup on the xbox and uninstall it from there then go into the pc and network&sharing center\change advanced sharing settings and remove the xbox from the list. Turn the xbox back on and it should reappear in the list with default settings. Now go into media player and 'allow remote control' - back in the xbox ui setup mc extender and you should be good to go. I've had the problem you are faced with plenty of times due to reformatting etc and it is always remnant of previous setup that causes the issue. Hope this helps

YEEAAHHH !! IT WORKS !!!
Thanks very much settingsun !!

I go in the MC setup menu on the xbox and at the end of the setup process, it give me the 8 numbers !!!
Then, I go on the PC, in the Media Center and put the code and... IT WORKS !!

If i do a network mapping, the interrupt line is still here but i think it represents the wifi connection.

Thousand of thanks !!!
