Lol!

V. good duckmagic.

Btw OP, why didn't you just get the computer delivered to work? That's what I usually do with large parcels...

Because then i wouldn't have been able to set it up and play with it straight away! wanted to see what all the vista fuss is about, and see if i can get it talking to the 360 before OH gets home...

And also it seemed like a good excuse for a day off work - had loads of holiday left.

Which version of vista did you get?

Home Premium, so that it comes with media center .

I have no idea how to get it talking to my Xbox 360.

When I start up the Xbox, the computer says it has found it. But, never got further than that.

They are only connected by the fact that both of them are using the Netgear Wireless Router...

Only other difference to XP with that is aero effects [which do take a large amount of graphics up] and the new startbar look and some compatability issues:)

Yeah but media center is pretty, and hopefully if i can get them all talking to each other i can watch stuff from the pc on the 360, which i can't do at the moment unless it's a wmv...

But how are they meant to be linked up. Directly via USB or is my connection ok? Can they talk via the router!? lol.

Nah, there's a lot of tiny behind-the-scenes changes too.

Just don't set a password or you'll find yourself constantly typing it in hehe. :-D

I have a wired connection between the router and the 360, and wireless to the PC. I reckon it should be ok, but also thinking about getting a wireless dongle for the 360 as well, to save on nasty wires all over the place.

So, the only connection I need is the fact they are both connected to the router (both mine are wired to the router).

Right, just need to figure out how to link them on the PC now then!

I only get 20 days a year and struggle to use them up for anything worthwhile. Only found out yesterday that statutory holidays increase to 24 days from October this year, and are going up to 28 days in April 2009. What on earth am I meant to do with this 'spare' time?

Lets hope that it doesnt come to this.....

...When you try and get it working!

Congrats on your 3000th MBeeching :thumbsup:

We get 25 days holiday standard, with the ability to carry over 5 days from last year, buy 5 more days at our daily rate or sell 5 days and pocket the money.

I carried 5 over, 30 days annual leave. No idea how I'm going to use it. Very long Christmas break coming up I think!

Did it come?
