Windows 7: WMC Connecting/Extender issue

Just spent the day ( 4 hrs ) , with the Telus Premium care techs , great service they went thru everything again and more that i had missed .

Re-config'd the routers , everything . The only stream we could get was with the Zune, when i got Zune running before the tech call , music was streamed properly but not pics. Now pics are there as well . The only thing is that there loaded into regular Xbox plain libraries and not the flashy Zune app. On my Xbox the Zune is like a Netflix , just movies and tv for $$ , and on my pc its just the personal library media player .

Can you DL the pc style version of Zune on Xbox or is the default xbox libraries all you get without having WMC working ....?

I honestly don't know mate, I don't use Zune, I use windows folder view, or WMC, but the xbox is supposed to be a proper extender and i've not had any problems with it running most things in my library, I think we need to find someone who has Zune and see what options you have in regards to playback applications within the Xbox interface.

For sure , for now if WMC is gonna be that much grief ( got my 3 D-Link IP cams working today , and there the worst to config ) im going on the Zune hunt to see if im able to install the PC Zune player on the Xbox or im stuck in lame default xbox libraries ....

Just had a look for zune on xbox and this is what I found Zune - Xbox.com
Looks like standard xbox interface to me...
