I've been using my xbox to watch avi movies using ccxgui and xbmsp for months with no problem, when all of the sudden it stopped working. Since then, I've searched the boards and tutorials for help but I always get no link. It's important to note that I've been using a laptop and a STRAIGHT CABLE with NO ROUTER for the past months and it has worked for me. I just plugged in the straight cable from my network card in my PC to the network card in my xbox. The crossover cable has never worked, but I've had sucess with the straight cable until now.
I've used all the FTP faqs and such but it always says "No Link!" on my EVOX dashboard settings. Before it would say I was connected.
Evox and XBMC
IP on computer LAN: 188.8.131.52
IP on XBox: 184.108.40.206
Wireless card: Disabled
I've come to the conclusion that my network card in my xbox must have stopped working, because I can't think of any other explanation. In the past the IP that worked was 220.127.116.11 on both my xbox and my PC, but following the FAQs I've changed it to the current ones.
I think I've covered all the specifications. PLEASE help me, I miss watching movies on my television instead of my small computer screen!
P.S. Do my settings in XBMC networking have any connection to the settings in the Evox dashboard?
I believe I have the XBMC set to Automatic (DHCP), but have tried setting that to static as well.
