Trying to set up the XBox as an extender on Windows Media Centre but the computer can see the XBox but the XBox can't see the computer.

My computer does not appear in where the list of computers should be in the XBox but the list is empty and when we try test connection it cannot connect to the computer. We are using an ethernet cable to connect and it works for the XBox to connect to the internet. The computer is connected to the same router by an ethernet cable. Trying to set the XBox up as an extender through Windows Media Centre on the computer it just said there was an error and it couldn't be set up not what the error is- there wasn't even an error code.

The reason why this  is not working is  because you do not  have  your media  sharing on.

simple  step to  do this is  to  try to  connect to the media center

while that is trying open up your windows media player

click your library  in there  is a media sharing option  click that

and you should see your xbox in there all you have to do is allow the settings for your xbox to share media from your computer and should  get you going to what your looking for
