    I am having some trouble with the Vista Beta I bought. I am using it in a
    Media Center fashion and I was trying to hook up my XBOX (Original) Media
    center extender with vista. ( I had it originally working with Media Center
    2005). When I launch the media center extender connect program within MC
    Vista. It says it does not see the XBOX. My Xbox is turned and is at the
    screen where you type in the number to attach it. Any Ideas? thanks for your

  2. According to the release notes for 5456,

    Xbox 360 as a Media Center Extender

    Support for Xbox 360 as a Media Center extender is not included in this
    Vista build. In order to continue using the Xbox 360 as a Media Center
    Extender with Vista, please remain on Beta 2 (build 5384). Support for the
    Xbox 360 as an Extender will be available in a future Vista build.

    Are you running build 5456? If so you should be posting this to the
    TechBeta newsgroups since those are the only people who have access to 5456.
    The folks in this public beta are still running build 5384 and none too
    happy about not having access to 5456.
