    Hi all:

    I'm running win 7 Ultimate x64. I also have an Xbox 360 connected via cat5 and all is well. Except that I want to stream home videos from PC to Xbox and I can't make it work. It appears that my main problem is that I can't start Media Center. It does not appear in my start menu. I have never seen it there since I installed about 4 month ago, immediately after RTM.

    I've been reading and reading and it SEEMS that I can download and install Media Center but I can't find out where. Alternatively, I understand that I can use a Media Center extender to stream video to the xbox but first I have to have media center running. I seem to be going around in circles.

    I tried to work around the problem by installing TVersity and was actually able to see and hear and avi file but others don't work.

    Anyone familiar with a problem like this? Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    J. R.
