Windows 7: Cannot connect to Xbox Media Center

08 Nov 2009   #11

windows 7

I tested and changed cables from my xbox to my router. they work fine.
I added ports to my router and update my router's firm ware.
I was just able to connect and watch about 5 min of a movie. I stopped it and went to my music. It loaded up the library then froze and disconnected.
It seems like the menus are working at the proper speed now, except for when i go to music.
My music collection is pretty large, I don't know if that is what's causing the disconnect or not. Anyone have any ideas?
The firmware upgrade did seem to increase the menu speed and allow to me to watch a 5 min video. I will try a larger video in a bit.
