Windows 7: WMC Connecting/Extender issue

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.
 
 

3. questions.

1. Which xbox model do you have?

2. Did you stream with wmc in the xbox and it worked fine after comparing? the differences are rather small for certain types like black bar widescreen
3. What type of T.V do you have and is it set up with hdmi?

If i do have something messed up in my wmc settings, why would xbox streaming apps like netflicks and hulu do the same? I'm really thinking its my old 2006 LCD 37'in now or the fact that im not using an hdmi cable but that avHD cable that the old xbox comes in.

Also might note that when i stream stuff from PC's to PC's everything is fine.

ive got the 2007 model xbox premium with HDMI, i connect to a sony bravia 32" 2010 model, with internet streaming and whatnot, it works brilliantly with WMC, when i have the codecs installed off xbox live, otherwise the videos wont load, but they display perfectly, in normal film resolution, no zooming or anything, sounds like you have video overscan enabled on your tv

I have realized that I have an overscan problem. The T.v I'm using does not have anything to disable overscan I reading that getting a vga xbox cable will fix the issue but i bought and hdmi cable i should get soon and hope that fixes the issue.

Where would i go in the settings of a t.v that can disable overscan anyway?

Well its seems ive tried everything ( maybe ) , one thing i think might be interfering is the fact that i use my Xbox as PVR for the Telus Optik service i have here . It builds the library , says connected , shows that it is , then fails a minute later .

DL'd the Tversity , looks pretty good . Still want to get WMC streaming between the ASUS and Xbox .

What about UAC level , would that matter ?

If its still networking problems calling xbox and asking to transfer to their extender support will help ALOT. try it

Got Zune working , but only in My Xbox library section . The Zune app in there is just for online media , not personal folders ?

Found this option unavailable after all the sharing and homegroup creating , firewall adding , extender etc . Nothing ever shows up in " Show devices on " dropdown menu ? I assume the xbox or ps3 should be showing up in there ?

It needs to be set in windows media player if you want to stream the folder library, open up WMP and click on the drop down menu under library, select media sharing, and there should be a list of devices in there that you need to allow or deny(I've not set it up with 7 yet so I'm just going from memory with vista) hope this helps
