    why not, download a program called flashfxp....... then transfer the media to your xbox, then watch straight on the xbox on the tv,

    or are you trying to do from the internet :thinking:

    i never got mine to show on the network :thinking: all i did was plug the xbox up to the router then used flashxp to transfer files using ftp to the xbox hard drive ......

    beware that the xbox hd is only 8GB in sixe (have you installed a bigger one) ??

    You have to should the directory in the video section of XBMC to the location of the file(s) you want to stream from the laptop. Then you needn't bother ftping it and filling the hard drive, i have a folder called Stream on my desktop, then put other folders in there 'tv Shows' 'Films' etc

    This isn't my screen unkleblacky, but it should be like this
