Xbox 360 smartglass can't find xbox 360- xbox 360 shows up in network devices "Gaming Device"

Not sure what else to try here.  I have followed all of the setup instructions.  Triple checked that smartglass was turned on the xbox, and ensured I was signed into the same Microsoft account. 

Any help?

Windows 8.1

Like the title says I can see the xbox as a network drive on the machine that can't connect.

You're not going to get it working. For some unknown reason, once your Microsoft account is hooked up to Windows 8/.1, Smarglass stops working. It's been broken for years. Microsoft still hasn't fixed it. I doubt they will any time soon.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

Great! Thanks for marking this as the answer.
