excuse my ignorance but how does that work?

Do you have Vuze on the pc?

Should be an icon for it if it's on the network and not blocked by your firewall. Just allow access to the 360 and you should be set.

its brand new, bought from argos last week
my son is watching a dvd on it at the moment, would that have anything to do with it??

Is your xbox connected to your network? It needs to be in order to stream.

yes, its on ethernet powerline plugs so my internet runs through my mains. it automatically connects to xbox live when i turn it on.

Doesn't your computer also need to be on the powerline adapters to pick up the connection with the xbox? I've not had much experience with powerlines.

no, my xbox connects via a powerline to the back of my modem (which is next to my pc)
