    Well i just started it yesterday the whole media sharing experience and i downloaded Tversity and everything it worked out fine i was happy. Now today i try it again and its not working. It says that the 360 cant find my PC. So i went to my computer and went to network and the network doesnt show the 360 either now. I went to WMP and i checked the 360 so it is allowed to share but its still not finding my PC. Last i tried to test my connection to my computer through the 360 here are the results

    Xbox to Xbox Live- Works
    Xbox to Computer- Fail
    Xbox to WMP- Fail

    for the last two the 360 connects fine to the Network but then does not find the PC for some reason. Any reason why or any help?

    Sometimes Tversity will have issues with the 360. Restart the sharing service on Tversity after the 360 is turned on.

    okay well i am using vista home basic, with a wired connection. On my network i have only one other thing it says "kids" because my dad set this all up. I am guessing "kids" means the computer 360 should show up there too.

    You might need to forward some ports on your computer... how's it connected? Wireless router > PC > ethernet cable > 360? That's how mine is.

    Did you try what I said? Restart the sharing service on your computer on Tversity while the 360 is turned on. Just hit the Restart Sharing button in settings in Tversity.

    i had the same problem. i was trying to connect the x360 through a wired connection to the laptop and it wouldn't go. the problem is there are usually many networks on the laptop and it is not always possible to run all of them simultaneously. i have a wireless router too and when i disabled my internet connection along with all my other networks the x360 was able to connect. i'm not sure where the conflict lies and can't be bothered to find the exact cause.

    Sorry Shyn i just tried it now and it worked at first because my 360 finally found Tversity but then when i tried to connect it had the same problem that i could not connect to my computer. It says "PC not Listed" Also i only have one other thing on my network so i dont think it could be that there are too many things on my network.

    You also have to disable media sharing in Windows Media Connect, Windows Media Player 11, and the Zune software (if you have those installed) for Tversity's sharing to work on the 360. (This also means you cant have PlayOn installed on the same system, if you have that)

    Thats not entirely true. I have WMP11, Tversity, and PlayOn installed on the same PC and they all work together in harmony. They each show up as seperate "servers" on my 360. [​IMG]

    How did you do that? PlayOn broke Tversity for me. They would show up in the list together, but Tversity would fail to connect.

    All I did was install them and made sure they weren't using the same ports for sharing. Then I just made sure the ports they were using were open.
