I'm having a problem getting a family members Xbox set up as an extender. If I'm posting in the wrong place let me know, but I thought some of you have experience with it so I'm giving it a shot.

This system was working fine up until yesterday, when my brother made several changes to the win 7 pc that is recording the programming from the Prime.

The Xbox started saying it could not connect to Windows Media Server. I ended up doing a roll back to a point last week when I knew everything was working.

The Xbox still had the same problem.

I removed the extender from WMC and started over with the Xbox. I got the 8 digit code from the Xbox and entered it into WMC.

WMC complained that the code was incorrect and to try again, which I did. After about five tried, I gave up and went to bed.

WMC fails during extender set up at step three - configuring extender.
I then get a configuration error, and am prompted to enter a new, 8 digit code (which ultimately fails).

So my question is, how do I trouble shoot this?

Thanks.

I should have proof read before posting above. The "prime"I am referring to is an outboard tuner called HDhomerun Prime. It has nothing to do with my issue.

I had the Xbox set up as an extender to Windows Media Center 7. The Xbox can play just about any media located on the pc.

My issue is that I can not get the Windows Media center pc to add the Xbox as an extender, even though before my brother touched it, it worked fine.

I'm not so sure this isn't related to the new dash and the rollout of Win8...I have the exact same issue on my upstairs setup...(except that I rarely use the connection...) I finally gave up, expecting an update of some sort to fix...

Check the firewall. Norton blocked WMC7 on my laptop, because once the free trial ran out, it got through again...
