Windows 7: Problem Sharing my Xbox 360

Problem Sharing my Xbox 360

Hello,

I previously had my OS at Windows XP, i have recently upgraded to Windows 7 which i much prefer. The only problem so far is that i cannot get my xbox 360 connected again so i can watch my shows, listen to my music etc. through the Xbox.

This previously worked at the click of a button on Windows XP. My xbox does not show up on windows media player 12, I have tried downgrading to WMP 11 which didnt work. I have tried adding the xbox as an extender of WMC but there is a configuration error??? I have tired doing all this with my firewall off etc. and had no luck. Does anyone know how i can get this connected.

Thanks

No I don't have any idea.

You could check services.msc from start menu search box. Copy and paste that to it, hit enter. Look to see that SSDP discovery is set to automatic and running. Do the same for Media Center Extender Service.

If you're running into lots of problems as it seems, I recommend using TVeristy as a superior (imho) alternative.

If you do, after installing, go back to services and disable the following:

UPnP Device Host
Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service
SSDP Discovery

Very well then. I think you'll enjoy it. When it asks, let it change the permissions in Windows Firewall. Check the box to tell it yes. It will do this near the end of install. Good luck.

I have installed that and added me external HD to the library etc. However my PC is still not showing up on my xbox for the record nothing came up regarding my firewall during or after installion. I did go to my firewall and checked if the program had been added to the allow list.

I have the exact same problem as you! On Vista it worked fine - I could watch movies and listen to music on my xbox without a problem. Now my xbox can't find my PC, yet my PC can find my xbox.

Will you go to your Local Area Connection Status for me and tell me if your IPv6 connectivity says "No network access".

I'm not entirely sure. Just trying anything that comes to mind really.

I know its definitely a Windows 7 problem, as my xbox can find my brother XP machine. Funny thing is though, I was able to find my PC on my xbox when I first got Windows 7, then i had network troubles and it stopped working.

Check router configuration to see that UPnP is enabled.

Mine is enabled.

Gareth: Are you using a network splitter to connect your PC + Xbox to the internet?
