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 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.

If it doesnt have media center, just right click and share any folders you want to stream through your xbox.

Media sharing WMP11 networking.


Your settings on your PC may not be set to allow sharing to your 360. The way I do it, is I download windows media player 11, imported my itunes library and my movies I had on my PC and allowed sharing via media player. These steps can be seen in more detail by going to www.xbox.com/pcsetup
