    Configuration Error" occurs when you try to add a Windows Media Center extender


    Hello,

    I receive an error when trying to add an extender to Windows Media Center 7 with Win 7 SP1, and an XBOX 360.

    I have already tried the two solutions here:

    http://support.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-360/connections/configuration-error

    and neither has resolved the issue.

    Also, as a part of following the instructions, the option to UNINSTALL the extender is missing.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you

    :)

    I receive the same error, right after I get the message that the extender driver has successfully installed. Here is my event viewer info:

    "Media Center Extender Setup cannot create an account for the Extender with ID: uuid:10000000-0000-0000-0200-6045BDB3EA8A.

    Error: Only part of a ReadProcessMemory or WriteProcessMemory request was completed."

    media center extender issues please help

    I got my
    PC
    Media Center and my Xbox360 media extender somehow out of

    sync with each other. In other words the WMC's don't seem to see each other.

    It seems the easiest thing for me to do, would be to uninstall the Media

    Extender from the PC Media Center. When I follow the steps to uninstall the extender from the Media Center PC there is NO option to Uninstall. Instead I only have the option to Add Extender

    WMC >

    Tasks >

    Settings >

    Extender >

    (the only option i get is) CONFIGURE

    (there is no UNINSTALL at this point)

    The device is seen in WMC as

    XBOX
    360


    not set up

    Setup key: ****-136*

    When I try to configure with a new setup key the wizard goes through the

    following check box's

    configuring computer settings - OK

    Searching for extenders - OK

    Configuring extender - fails

    The next screen indicates

    Configuration error

    An error was encountered while configuring your computer to use with this

    Extender.

    The
    XBox
    at this point has a Windows Media Center splash screen open and

    indicates "contacting" under that

    But the connection never resolves.

    This is a
    Windows
    7
    WMC PC

    Streaming Media From Windows Media Player to Xbox 360

    During Windows Media Center Extender setup, Windows Firewall has to be updated to allow communication between the Windows Media Center-based computer and the Xbox 360 console. If the Windows Firewall service has been stopped, these updates can't occur. Therefore,
    the Windows Media Center Extender Setup program won't install.(from the support site)

    HD Video Not Playing in XBox Media Center

    Hi Prosecutor Z,



    When you set up the Windows Media Center Extender, did you uninstall the Windows Media Center Extender

    as described here
    and they try setting it up again? Also, do these movies show cover art when in the int Media Center or is it not displaying artwork in either app? And when playing these videos through the Media Center app, are you on a wired or wireless
    connection? Do you notice a difference through various connection setups? Let us know. Thanks.

    Media Center and XBOX wont work - windows 7

    My PC is Windows 7 Home Edition, My Xbox and PC are both on a wireless connection, I managed to connect the Media Center just fine, The way I did this is following the step by step instructions on connecting them together. Please double check these instructions
    and see if you missed a step or maybe by mistake did something wrong.



    First to be on the safe side do this.

    •Click Start, Windows Media Center.

    •Select Task, Settings.

    •Select Extender.

    •Select your Xbox 360 Media Center Extender.

    •Select Uninstall.

    If you cant find the Xbox 360 Media Center Extender then you may not have it installed yet. After checking this step please try the following.



    Gather Setup Key from Xbox 360

    •Press the Media Center Start button on the remote or go to My Xbox, then select Windows Media Center.

    •Advance through the on-screen instructions to obtain the 8-digit Media Center Setup Key. Write this key down.



    Add Extender

    •At the Windows Vista or Windows 7 Media Center PC, launch Windows Media Center. Select Start, Windows Media Center.

    •Select Tasks, Add Extender.

    •When prompted, provide the 8-digit setup key you received from your Xbox 360.

    •Complete the Extender setup.



    This is the exact way that I have installed the media center using a Wireless connection to both systems and having Windows 7. I am however not sure if network discovery has anything to do with this on your PC.

    Mediacenter no connction to xbox

    Which version of Windows are you using Tubias? Only certain versions of Windows have Media Center installed and your console should give you a code to configure media center on your PC. Did that occur?

    Media Center is for when you're using the Xbox as a Media Center Extender, when connected to a PC running Windows Media Center. :)
