My xbox 360 has a passcode that have been set but i do not set the passcode.


From the System area of the Xbox Dashboard, select Family Settings, Console Controls.
Enter an incorrect pass code.
You will be told that your pass code is incorrect. Select Reset pass code.
You will then be shown your pass-code question and asked to answer it.

Type your answer using the on-screen virtual keyboard and either your Xbox 360 controller or a standard USB computer keyboard plugged into a controller port on your console. Your answer is case-sensitive and must be typed exactly as you entered it originally. This will clear your original pass code and allow you to enter another.
Repeat the Set a Family Settings Pass Code procedure, beginning with step 2.
If you've forgotten the answer to your pass-code reset question as well as your pass code, please call Xbox Customer Support at 1-800-4-MY-XBOX (1-800-469-9269).

Xbox set up


If you have an Xbox 360 connected to a home network that also has a Windows Media Center, you can add your Xbox 360 as a Media Center Extender device so that you can enjoy the digital media on your Windows Media Center computer by using Xbox 360. For more information, see Xbox 360 online.
1. Turn on your Windows Media Center computer and log on to Windows. Verify that your computer is connected to your home network.
2. Turn on your Xbox 360 and verify that it is connected to your home network.
3. In Windows Media Center, on the start screen, scroll to Tasks, and then click add extender.
4. On the Welcome to Windows Media Center Extender Setup screen in Windows Media Center, click Next.
5. Press the Green Start button blank.gif on your Xbox 360 remote control or use your Xbox 360 controller to select the media blade.
6. On your Xbox 360, select Media Center.
7. On your Xbox 360, follow the instructions on the screen to obtain an 8-digit Windows Media Center Setup Key. Write down this 8-digit setup key. This is the key that you will use to affiliate your Xbox 360 with your computer that has Windows Media Center.
You do not need to download any additional software because the Extender functionality is built into Windows Media Center.
8. On the Enter the Setup Key screen in Windows Media Center, use the Windows Media Center remote control or keyboard to enter the 8-digit setup key that displays on Xbox 360, and then click Next.
9. Follow the steps in Extender Setup.
Several changes are automatically made to your Windows Media Center computer during the Extender Setup, including changes to the Windows Firewall settings. For more information about Windows Firewall, see Windows Firewall: recommended links. During this time, the Windows Media Center Extender service (which is named mcx2svc) starts on your computer, along with other dependent services.
If you have a firewall running on your computer that is not the Windows Firewall, make sure that the firewall software is set up to allow Xbox 360 to connect to your Windows Media Center computer as a Windows Media Center Extender. Some firewalls are already set up to allow Xbox 360 to connect to a Windows Media Center computer as a Media Center Extender. However, other firewalls will require you to make changes to how the firewall software is set up. For more information about which firewalls are already set up to allow a Media Center Extender connection, as well as information about how to set up other firewalls to work with a Windows Media Center Extender such as Xbox 360, go to the Firewalls and Media Center Extender article on the Microsoft website.
10. After Extender Setup has finished, in Windows Media Center, click Finish.
On the TV that is connected to Xbox 360, the Windows Media Center user interface appears. You can then enjoy live TV, recorded TV, pictures, music, videos, and other digital media on your Xbox 360 as you would in Windows Media Center. A new user account named mcx1 (by default) is automatically created to use the Extender.

Please see http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/Windows/en-US/Help/8076aff3-16ec-4751-9f57-d36e0ff407201033.mspx#EPD for more info.

Thanks and hope that helps!

Hi aureliogovea

Please everyone that comes across my info take a few seconds of your time to rate my solution which you can select at the bottom of my answer Was this solution helpful? YES or NO :)... As i have taken time to answer your question the best i can Thank You......



If children use your Xbox console, you can set a pass code to control access to features and options. Because Family Settings exist for both the console and for Xbox LIVE accounts, you can set pass codes for both.
Here you can learn how to:
Set an Xbox LIVE Pass Code
When you set an Xbox LIVE pass code for your profile, anyone who wants to use that profile will need to enter the pass code before signing in to Xbox LIVE.

To set an Xbox LIVE pass code:
  1. Go to My Xbox and open your profile.
  2. Select Manage Account, Xbox LIVE Pass Code.
  3. Enter a four-button code using the X andY buttons, triggers, bumpers, and directional pad on your controller.
  4. Confirm your code by entering it again.
To reset your pass code, repeat this procedure at any time. (You will have to enter your original Xbox LIVE pass code before you can create a new one.)


Set a Family Settings Pass Code
When you create a Family Settings pass code, anyone who wants to change family settings on your console will need to enter the pass code first.

You can also use your Family Settings pass code to override game and movie settings if you (or those with whom you share your pass code) want to play games or watch DVD movies that your console settings normally block.
For example, you could give the pass code to your 18-year-old so that she can watch R-rated movies that your younger child is not allowed to see.
To set a pass code for your console:
  1. Go to My Xbox and open System Settings.
  2. Select Family Settings, Console Controls.
  3. Select Set Pass Code.
  4. Select Pass Code, then enter a four-button code using the X and Y buttons, triggers, bumpers, and directional pad on your controller.
  5. Confirm your code by entering it again.
  6. Choose a pass code reset question.
  7. Select Pass Code Reset Answer and enter your answer using either your Xbox 360 controller or a standard USB computer keyboard plugged into a controller port on your console.
  8. Select Done from the Set Pass Code screen, then select Done once more from the Console Controls screen. When prompted, select Yes, save changes to put your new settings into effect.
To reset your pass code, repeat this procedure at any time.
Reset a Forgotten Pass Code
To reset your pass code after you've forgotten it:
  1. Go to My Xbox and open System Settings.
  2. Select Family Settings, Console Controls.
  3. Enter an incorrect pass code.
  4. You'll be told that your pass code is incorrect. SelectReset pass code.
  5. You'll then be shown your pass code question and asked to answer it.
  6. Set a new pass code, following the directions in the previous section.
If you've forgotten the answer to your pass-code reset question as well as your pass code, call Xbox Customer Support at 1-800-4-MY-XBOX (1-800-469-9269).

How do i share media with my xbox ?


Basically, what you need is a Windows - based computer. Follow these steps on the setup:

ON YOUR XBOX 360:
• go to media center on the dashboard
• and follow the on screen prompt
• it will generate an 8 digit code (better to note it down)
• go to your Windows PC

ON YOUR WINDOWS PC
• go to Media Center
• go to "tasks"
• select settings and configure media center extender
• select your Xox 360 and once asked for the 8 digit code, enter the code you noted
• confirm the changes

Finalize the set up on you computer and Xbox 360 and you are ready to go. If you will encounter any problems please let me know.. Cheers!

I have Microsoft Xbox 360 Universal Media Remote and can't get the TV codes to work on my Viewsonic TV. I tried manaully scaning for a code without luck. Can any one suggest a TV code for a Viewsonic...


just to be sure go thru the steps for the remote to scan properly:

http://support.xbox.com/support/en/us/xbox360/hardware/accessories/media/universalmediaremote.aspx

If you already went thru these steps then I would suggest going to this page:

http://www.xbox.com/NR/exeres/3D295224-0688-4AFE-B6AB-0580AD69C86D.htm

It has all the codes for viewsonic tv's. If you go thru all these codes and you manually have the remote try to find a working code but to no avail, then the remote is not compatible with your TV, but there is always the last step of calling Microsoft support:

http://support.xbox.com/support/en/us/nxe/contact.aspx

If they cant help then you know for sure the remote isn't compatible with your TV.

I cannot find where to enter my code for media sharing with my pc on the xbox website, can you solve this?


There are 2 ways of media sharing.

On your pc, just open up Windows Media Player, Must be 11+ then just go into media sharing and add library. There should be your xbox360, and allow it to share media.

Second way is, media sharing using windows media center and for that you can always visit: http://www.xbox.com/en-US/pcsetup/alldownloads.htm
and chose your OS and go from there.

Additional information for given answer: Don't bother with the ch/pg button as the instructions mention; simply enter the code and press the TV button. 0044 worked for me after doing this, but not when pressing the ch/pg buttons as the instructions indicate.

I have a belkin g router i connect my xbox 360 to it but when i try to get online with xbox it says computer not found


What you are going to have to do is configure your computer, (which should have Windows Media Center) to see your xbox. You do this through the media center. Open up the media center on your computer which is connected to the same network as your xbox. Go under setting and add extender. go to media center on your xbox get the 8 digit number enter it on your computer and let it configure
