You may have to re-establish connections with your computer or a computer on the same network. If that doesn't work rewrite the pin number and just reconnect to Microsoft Media Connection all over again with you computer.

Trying to stream media from pc to xbox 360 but my pc won't connect at the "select source" screen on my xbox 360. I have forwarded all the proper ports...I think.


That is a peculiar device for doing that. It doesn't like some types of files and with video it's got to be VERY delicately encoded or it won't work. You need to have your PC up and running, when you load your xbox (at least with Vista and Windows 7) it should pop up by your clock a bubble saying "Media Extender available" click that and you should get some instructions.

My xbox 360 cant get a valid ip adress from my router to ad an extender to share media with my pc.And my internet connection is fine.


You dont need an internet connection to add an extender, but also if you are doing the xbox live network test, make sure you turn on INTERNET CONNECTION SHARING otherwise you will not connect,run a pc - xbox , then media connection test, etc, also make sure you have the media centre open on your computer also. Good Luck.

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

Also might be useful to open file and media sharing in network settings.

When you get to the Market place scroll down with your D-pad and stop on Redeem Code, insert the code info from your new card, select the profile you want to associate it with and that should update your account with your new paid subscription.

PC Selected - Failed


wmp11 streaming works upon universal plug and play on your router to direct streaming. I have had this problem too. Maybe people do. I found that upnp on my router was always the problem. Make sure it's enabled, and if you have not restarted your router do that. and after you enable upnp, its a good idea to restart it also. I'd give it a 75% chance its a universal pnp problem. Yet if your port forwarding, you might need to disable it, i dont know, i always just used upnp for simplicity. Finally, double check you have a static ip for your port forwards if you continue on that route.
