That is the problem Chancer. You can download Media Connect but the 360 will only let you stream music and pictures to it and not video unless you use a Media Center PC.
I agree completely that this is a dumb set up. I just got my 360 yesterday and I have Media Connect up and running but the 500GB of video I have on my computer is not available. The music sounds great though. You can eaven stream the music while you are in any game. I dont know If you can get a patch on the pc to work for this because Media Connect is sharing Video but the 360 dosent even have an option to select video except from a Media Center PC. So if somebody can find a way to change Media Connect (or build a new app.) so it tricks the 360 into thinking that an xp computer is a Media Center Computer that would be cool.
The only other problem I can see right now with the 360 is that it should have something in the setup to resize your screen. In the dashboard (or whatever they are calling it with the 360) most of the words on the left hand side of my screen have the first letter or two cut off. And there is no adjustment in my TV's menue to correct this. It is an older TV though and I may be the only one having this problem. I guess it is about time for me to upgrade to an HDTV set.
Thanks for everything guys this is my first post but I have been using this site for a year now and I really appreciate all of the help I have found here.
Love the scene and cant wait for you guys to crack this thing I know it is not a question of IF
