xbox live idiots guide please - bt vision/homehub/xbox & a switch - live streaming?

I am a total newbie to this, I have a new elite and am wanting to go live.
Firstly I have pc & bt homehub in one room and tv & xbox in another room. I have connectivity to the net via powerline adaptors and can download content, create gamertag etc all OK.
How do I play online? I was trying with Halo3, but can't access any servers, as you do with pc online gaming. What's all this "party" stuff & friends?
Secondly, how do you set up streaming from pc to xbox for my set up?
Win Xp sp2 & WMP11 ...share media etc ... but can't see the xbox ....help!

Sussed part of it - matchmaking finds people to battle with.
Anyone help with streaming??
#2
you will need to enable media sharing in WMP11 on your PC, then you should be able to see the computer and access it through the media "blade".

Go to [url]www.xbox.com/pcsetup[/url] for all the neccessary info

Tried to enable media sharing in WMP11 but it doesn't find anything to share to (ie it doesn't see the xbox)

#5
maybe I have to mess around with portsor firewall or something because my pc doesn't see the xbox when I click share media in WMP11
Any thoughts?
#6
Try connecting the xbox to the hub via a cable and then try it.

It may be a problem with drop outs over the powerlines.
#7
Got it working now, after disabling windows firewall so that xbox can be seen via WMP11. Have now re-enabled windows firewall & allowed exceptions & it seems to work. IT expert methinks (not).

Further question:
In my set-up as above, how can I have xbox & BTV side by side in room next to my TV when Home hub & pc is another room?
ie I can use powerline adaptors but do I need a switch from the adaptor beside the BTV to split the connectivity between BTV & my xbox?
If so will this do the trick

yes, you will need to use a switch/hub and that one suggested should do the trick

Can the xbox do live streaming?
(Thinking about live football from the net streamed to TV)
#11
Can the xbox do live streaming?
Can you set it up to output via xbox to your TV "live" from the net?
#12
No streaming in the sense that you mean. But soon you will be able to download things on it like you do with the bt vision thingy.
