    OK, so I'm having a serious WTF moment with my 360. I use it to stream video direct from my PC so I can watch it on my TV, and I've never had a problem with it. Until now.

    Was watching stuff fine earlier today, then all of a sudden I get this message:

    OK, fine, I think. Restart Xbox, restart PC, everything will be fine. Apparently not. Despite everything being 100% (everything is shared, set up in Media Player, connection is hunky dory, firewall is fine etc.), it will NOT stream video or music from my PC.

    Anybody have ANY ideas at all??

    OK scratch this. For some reason, not 2 minutes after posting this, it decided to start working again.

    I hate Microsoft.

    I had this issue happen to me quiet frequently so I ended up downloading the Zune software and never had an issue for the last 6 months.

    Of course just last week it stopped working for me. Sees all my folders but when I open them up it says there's no video in there. :mad:

    Yep. Zune software is teh awesome with the 360.

    Though having a Zune helps :D 

    The Zune is great to connect to the 360 too!
