How'd you do it? Add your own image?

I have a 2WIRE 1800 Home Gateway. It has 4 ethernet ports and wireless connectivity. I ran 40 feet of cable to my office, and connected the 360 to one of the ethernet ports.
Then I downloaded Windows Media Connect from www.xbox.com/pcsetup It was really hard for me, for some reason. It was a long process for me. But basically install this program, open your firewall, so the 360 can get through. Then go to you 360/Media/Music then it will ask you if you've installed Media Connect. Say yes, and the 360 will try to connect to your PC. Good luck it took me about 13 tries. The ports I was told to open up was as follows:

Port/Name/Protocol
2869/Upnp Framework/TCP
1900/Upnp Framework/UDP
10284/Windows Media Connect/UDP
10283/Windows Media Connect/UDP
10282/Windows Media Connect/UDP
10281/Windows Media Connect/UDP
10280/Windows Media Connect/UDP
10243/Windows Media Connect/TCP


Hope you get it working. If all else fails call 1-800-4-MYXBOX

Almost forgot

Once you get the 360 and the PC connected. Go to Media/Pictures/Computer Then go to the photo you want as a background, just highlight it. Then at the bottom left corner you'll see it says to press X to set that photo as your background. Their you have it!

Hi all,

This solved my remote(s) problem:Kameleon "All-In-One" Remote.
Kenwood VR-7070 Reciever
Pioneer DVD player
Panasonic 51" RP HDTV
Directv HR10-250 HD DVR
Infocus SP4805 FP

Nice feature is you can upgrade (add) new equip codes transmitted via a land line phone connection to the Kameleon Remote. Glow in the dark display makes it a cinch to use (and find).
Some folks complain about low battery life, but no problem here.
The display is sensitive and will light up on high bass levels and occasional bumps, but again not a problem for me. Got it online at Amazon.com last year.
Went from 5 remotes to two. (Still prefer to use with the Infocus Remote)

Regards,
sgibson

As for the utter lack of manners, poise, or class.......blame her parents.

She, along with Mariah Carey, should be on a poster that reads "Parents, if you daughters turn out like this, you have FAILED AT YOUR JOB".


Now, how can I put a custom wallpaper on my xbox 360 again?? Do I need that Media connect and an XP computer to do this!??!?


Hehe, yeah but at least Mariah has some nice j*gs.

Here's DOA4 in 1080i on my Sony 60" SXRD (KDS-R60XBR1)









post #210 of 8015
I've been pretty pleased with my 360 at 1080i on my 65" CRT set. I know the image would probably look a little bit better with a digital display, but its not bad or a problem by any stretch of the imagination.

However I think this weekend, if I have the time, I'm going to try to hook the 360 up to my 480p projector instead, if anything just to do a little comparision and see how things look.
