Visualizations In Media Center?

Hello:

I have a PC running Windows Vista Ultimate. I am using my X-Box 360 as a media extender. On the X-Box, I was going to the media tab, selecting music, changing my source from the X-Box to the PC, and playing my music. While it played, I had the option of viewing visualizations. That's a fantastic feature for me because my X-Box 360 is connected to a projector. When people came over to hang out, we could jam to music with Visualizations that are 10 feet wide and nearly 6 feet high in high definition.

At any rate, I turned my X-Box 360 into a media center extender the other day. Now, when I play my music on my X-Box, I can't find a setting for Visualizations. Is this not an option in Windows Media Center?

I tried to go into my music the old way as a temporary fix, but it only shows that I have 15 songs available. I'm not sure how those got there or where the other music is. In Media Center though, I can find and play all of my songs....just without Visualizations. Not much a party without them.

Any and all information will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Magus

Hello magusbuckley...

In Media Center, right click and choose "Settings", then select "Music", then "Visualization Options", change the options the way you want them and click on "Save".

Thanks for the reply. I found those settings on the PC, but not on the X-Box 360. I'll assume then, that the Visualization feature is not an option for extenders or more specifically, not an option for the X-Box 360.

I suppose my next move will be to figure out how to disjoin my 360 from the Media Center as an extender so I can play my music the old way.

Thanks for your help.

Even still, I plan on doing more research about the Media Center extenders and how that feature relates to the 360.

Thanks,

Magus
