So when I was having issues and called for support the agent advised me to simply share through WMP instead of center and its working flawlessly

I use windows 7, and no the connection you describe is fine.  To share media player above the main menu you should see an organize option and you can select the share option, Its been a while since I have done this so if this doesn't help let me know and I'll access my WMP when I get home and give you more detailed instructions.

organize => manage libraries, then select the type of files you want to share and add the folders which contain the media desired, then it will show up under your video/music libraries on the console.

you shouldn't have to open ports cause your on the network with your PC, may need to restart the PC and console but that was all I had to do.
