i just did some experimenting with the uPnP features of Xbmc as well.
Xbmc works great as media center, and can stream media from other devices like your pc, however,
it's only capability to work as media server is trough uPnP.
i found some tools on the Intel website, and they also don't see the xbox as uPnP server or renderer.
Only the vista version of windows media player 11 has uPnP buildin.
I still use xp, so I don't know if the xbox is recognised by that package.
I found a package from Cidero that sees the xbox, but it is unable to control it over uPnP....
Let me preface by saying I'm new to Linux in general, let alone XBMC and I'm pretty computer illiterate. Now, In your synaptic package manager their is a tool: "upnp-inspector". The inspector recognizes Rhythmbox as "MediaServer:2 and MediaRenderer:2". Once my Xbox 360 recognized Rhythmbox (just went to my music on the 360 and it showed up) the UPnP Inspector recognized the Xbox as "MediaRenderer:1" Unfortunately, the XBMC was not recognized by the Inspector. And it does't appear that XBMC recognizes the Xbox either. Maybe someone smarter than me could use the Inspector to at least configure a music stream through Rhythmbox to your 360. If so, I'd love to know how. Teach a man to fish!
