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

    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.

    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.
