WMC On Xbox 360 shows "Video Error: Files needed to display video are not installed ......

Before when using Windows 7 with Xbox 360 everything worked fine.
Upgraded to windows 8.  WMC can play recorded shows on PC but when I try to play recorded shows with WMC from XBox 360 I get the following message
"Video Error: Files needed to display video are not installed or not working correctly. Please restart Media Center and or restart the computer"
I have no codecs installed
I tried regedit change suggested for vista, doesn't work
I tried disabling/enabling WMC on the PC, doesn't work
Restarting the PC doesn't work
Restarting everything doesn't work

got this error the other day it drove me crazy. You know what fixed it? Turning off my firewall. For whatever reason it decided to start blocking my xbox. Hope this helps.
