Tried MS technical support last night on this but no joy so thought I'd try here.
I got my shiny new 360 and, as I have no games yet, went straight for the media center extender set-up to see what it can deliver.
Ran the set-up on the 360 dashboard, got the enabling code and then got to the page where it tells you to visit xbox.com/pcsetup & download the software.
Went upstairs to my Media Center 2005, Rollup 2 PC, downloaded the software and ran it. Everything goes ok but I keep getting "Xbox 360 not found" during the set-up procedure. I have opened all relevant ports on Zonealarm, (my firewall, Windows firewall is off), even tried running it with the firewall not running. No Joy.
I know the 360 is connected to my network as it shows up on my network monitoring software, Network Magic. I know it is being assigned an IP address by the router as I can also see this on Network Magic. Also during the connectivity check you can run from the 360 dashboard it passes the “IP address phase but fails the “find the computer” phase.
I’m stumped and so, currently, is Microsoft. The calls escalated beyond the normal outsourced tech support back to the real MS guys.
FYI the 360 is wired via Ethernet to the router so def no wireless problems etc. I’ve also forwarded a the ports the set-up software says the extender needs on the router.
