I have XBMC, I connect the ethernet cable directtly to my PC but it wont detect it. Can you connect the xbox directly to play files on PC so you wont have to put everything on the disc or copy to HDD?

You'll need a crossover cable, and you need to have static ip's on the xbox and pc. You can also share your PC internet connection (wireless or wired) to the xbox this way. This is how I have my xbox networked.

if you have a router connect both pc and xbox to your router, then share teh folders containing you wanna stream . add them as sources in XBMC, and boom. Networked access, however if you dont have a router you will need to follow smokyjoe's method
