    what you actually tryin to do ? ?
    you got a modded box ? soft? hard ?

    To add sources you need to change E:\Apps\XBMC\UserData\sources.xml
    If you can't find it anywhere, let me know and I'll send it to you in PM.

    i've got somewhere i now have weather

    i just use ccxstream. set all the folders/directories i want to share. then in xbmc add the link to the source. i.e
    video .add source. e:/:xmbc .. c:/films add. ok ok (?something like that)

    with ccxstream can u watch stage6 movies?

    stage6 ?
    ccxstream is a program that connects the xbox to the pc to stream over media.
    it links the 2 together..

    Download it to your PC via FTP and use any text editor (apart from Word) to edit it. Once edited, upload it to your Xbox to the same location where it was (overwrite). Then restart XBMC and you should see your newly added source.

    Im not sure what your using but seems a little long winded, Google xbins and you will get the info and xbmc files.
    then all you need to do is open an ftp connection to xbox, make a folder in E: called apps and ftp the contents of the xbmc folder to it.
    when thats done share any media folders u choose on PC over network.
    power up xbox choose video or whatever u want to use and setup path by searching . and thats it.

    this is the bit i'm stuck on

    i assume your using xp, if so use the control panel go to network & internet connections. under pick a task choose 3rd option, set up or change a network connection and follow the promts.
    when thats complete simply right click and folder you want to share select properties and enale sharing..
    once you have the path set on xbox it will stay permenant. I just make a nedia folder and have several sub folders with in that IE: XVID MPE etc etc.

    right everyone thanks for helping
    not only have i unlocked the door to the connections there is another door locked its really frustrating

    i have managed to find some sources but they all seem to be locked and asking for passwords
    the only passwords i hve used is xbox and xbox

    What you need to do is to create shared folder on your PC. If you decided to create password-protected one then write down the password and username. Forget about xbox/xbox for a minute - this is password for Xbox, not SMB share.

    Then, go to Xbox and add SMB source - this is going to be shared folder on your PC. You can do it in sources.xml too. For example, your VIDEO section should look as follows:


    SMB on My PC
    smb://WORKGROUP;username: [email protected]_NAME/media/VIDEO
    E:\Apps\XBMC\media\video.png



    In this case:
    WORKGROUP is your Windows Workgroup
    username is username you created for shared folder access.
    _password is password for user above
    PC_NAME is you PC name in workgroup.
    the rest is shared directory.

    SMB on My PC
    smb://WORKGROUP;username: _password@PC_NAME/media/VIDEO
    E:\Apps\XBMC\media\video.png


    thanks a lot
    unfortunately i didnt load xbmc at start up so have to go via file explorer on unleash
    are the things in bold what i need to chage to get the path to the laptop?

    The WORKGROUP could be different on your PC - on mine it is MSHOME, for example, so check it first. The /media/VIDEO will be different too - it depends on how you organize your media collection.

    WELL have no idea what i did but xbmc doesnt start any more
    just hangs
    have tried reinstaling it but it does the same
    checked on the file and the old xboxcmediacentre.xml is still there(i thought i had over written it):x:x

    Just copy it to Xbox again. And forget about xboxmediacentre.xml please! You don't need to anything with it.

    well what an amazing experience that was

    managed to get online share everything
    downloaded loads of scripts then it suddenly hung on me

    rebooted and it hangs on xbmc start up:x:x:x

    thanks for thr help guys

    Go to UnleashX or Evox and download Sources.xml FROM Xbox to your PC via FTP.
    Then copy fresh installation of XBMC to same place where the old one was. Just overwrite it.
    Try it and if it works, then copy sources.xml back to where it was.
    This was you'll get fresh XBMC installation with working sources (you said it worked for you, right?).

    I had probs ftp-ing to my Xbox (i use CoreFTP).. I had to disable all firewalls, including windows defender and windows firewall, and turn off the 'PASV' mode on the FTP client when loading up. It's all over the internet (there is a dedicated XBMC forum somewhere on the internet).
    I didn't edit the xml file at all -- once your Xbox is on the network, as is your laptop, 'share' the folders you wish you share from the laptop using the normal windows interface, then from XBMC go to 'My Videos' then 'SMB something' and all of your windows shared content will be on there for you.

    Don't know what is going on there. As I said previously - download via FTP sources.xml from your Xbox, save it on PC, then go back to Xbox and delete XBMC folder completely.
    Then upload clean XBMC installation there and copy sources.xml across. This will be quicker than truying to debug it.
