OK.... So I have a Win 7 ****d Laptop that I recently upgraded from Vista... I bought the laptop, It came with the upgrade. I have had trouble connecting to my PC through my XBOX 360 the whole time. Now I have called microsoft and they had me go through and they had me go through and change all theses started and delayed started programms and what not, I don't remember everything, but alot of them were the UpnP and networking things... all that was beyond my knwledge... in eiter case, it seemed like it connected right up, but then when I turned off my console, it would disconnect, and I would have the same problem on start up... I have had Norton Security actually control my PC and put all the proper settings in, and even tried it with out the firewalls on, and still had the same problem. I also had the problem when I had AVAST.
The exact issue is this... When trying to connect through my xbox360 Dashboard, I get to the searching for PC page, it has the option, "PC not listed"
Now, if I sit there and wait, sometimes for a long time, sometimes not so long, My PC DOES show up... and if I select it within literally the first second of it popping up, It usually connects. And it will stay connected until I turn my PC off. But if I wait even a second to select it... it will not connect.:mad:
I have had this problem for about a year, on Vista and Win 7... With AVAST and Norton 360...
Like a week ago, I was at my buddies house, and he didn't even know you could stream from his PC like that.... so I tried his out. I set everything up like mine is, and the second that I chose to allow streaming to the 360 inside windows media PLAYER, his PC showed up on the 360... and has stayed connected since... I checked his OS, Windows XP... I really don't want to have to go buy XP... I like win 7 and I know I should be able to perform these tasks.... I am not interested in streaming via Media Center, and I have the same problem there.
I have a softmodded original XBOX that streams seamlessly, up until a week ago, but that is my problem, and they are not related...
any help would be greatly appreciated if you even got this far!!!:devil2:
