    alrighty... i've been trying for a couple hours to stream my music and videos from my computer to my Xbox 360 .. my 360 told me to go to Xbox.com | Xbox 360 Media Download Center .. i've done the steps it says to do.. but when i get into WMP and try to get my 360 to the allowed share list it doesnt even show up.. like where there is supposed to be list of hardware or whatever, it shows nothing.. blank white area.. bah.. pissing me off..

    everything is connected right.. i'm using a powerline adapter (for those who dont know what that is, its plugs the ethernet cable into the power outlet and sends the internet through the powerlines) would that cause my computer and xbox to not recognize each other??

    possibly.
    does it work as a networking device, or is it just to send internet?
    try a network adapter.

    Hmm, I'm not sure of what the problem could be but I will check with my brother and see if he knows, Clint. I'll let you know if I find out anything.

    Any luck figuring out the problem, Clint? I've talked to my brother for a second but he's been so busy that we haven't been able to finish the freakin' conversation.

    you need to use media center expander.

    what are you running for windows? you need a media center enabled OS.

    I see the problem, Clint. You have to learn how to "share" with others. :D
