Ok I have an Xbox360 and Windows 7 Pro x64. My router is a 3800HGV-B.
What do I need to do to connect the 360 to windows media center? I have tried just about everything I can think of and can get no further than the connecting screen. This includes turning the firewall completely off and going to ethernet
The 360 and computer see each other. If I do a bandwidth test on the computer while the 360 is showing the connecting screen I show that I can do everything but HD video which is fine.
Due to other problems I have replaced both the 360 and router.
I am fairly well versed in computers and networking but this has had me quite confused.

This is from the MS site:
"Windows Media Center is available in the Home Premium, Professional, Ultimate, and Enterprise editions of Windows 7."
Is your version one of those?
Second, is your Xbox getting internet access at all, i.e. can you connect to Xbox Live, etc? If not that's where we need to start.

It is windows 7 Professional 64bit.
Yes the 360 has internet access. it can even access video and music files on the computer. it just cannot connect to media center.

Did you go through the process of adding the Xbox Media Extender in Media Center?
It's a 2 step process.
You need to add the Xbox in Media Center adn then connect to Media Center in the Xbox settings.
One of the sides will give you a code that you have to enter into the other (sorry, can;t remember which - I have a HTPC now and don;t use my Xbox any longer).
