Hi MexicoAllstar,

a.     Do you get any error messages?

I see that you have posted the issue earlier as well. Did you try the steps mentioned by ryan_moore and Meghmala.

Follow the steps mentioned here to setup your Xbox console as an extender:

You must first associate your Xbox 360 console with your Windows Media Center computer. To do this, follow these steps:

1. Open Windows Media Center on your computer. To do this, click Start, scroll to Tasks, and then click Add Extender.
2. Follow the prompts until you are prompted to enter an 8-digit key.
3. On your Xbox 360 console, use your Xbox 360 controller to scroll to My Xbox.
4. Select Windows Media Center.
5. Select Continue.
6. Note the 8-digit setup key that is displayed. This is the key that you will use to associate your Xbox 360 console with your computer that is running Windows Media Center.
Note: If your Xbox 360 console was previously connected to a computer, the console may not provide an 8-digit setup key. For more information about how to clear connection information from your Windows Media Center computer and from your Xbox 360, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

7. On your computer, type the 8-digit setup key. Then, click Next.
8. Follow the prompts to complete the setup.
