Hi there
I have looked around but cant find my scenario.

First off al specs
Window XP SP3 + Windows Media Player 11
Pentium Duo core 3ghz
Intel motherboard
3gig ram
160 gig Hdd + 500 gig hdd (Where all the media will be stored)

Xbox 360 Arcade version with the latest dashboard upgrade.

The two are connected trough a Corssover cable.

First thing First
I have connected the Xbox to the pc installed the media player 11
Went through the setup on WMP11 to share and aloow the xbox.
All is fine no problem the MP11 picks up the xbox and is allowing it currently.
I create a playlist that I can share in the library.

Go to Xbox go to system and find pc section.
It searches and then I get the error that no connection can be made to a pc.

No my pc can see the xbox I switched all the firewalls off and currently has no anti virus on the machine for its not connected and I did not install any for the reason to see ifd the xbox will connect.

Did I miss anything during the setup or is it actually MP11 that acts up?
I have twonkimedia installed also but not currently using it.

Any help will be appreciated
