    Default Windows Media Center

    This is mainly for Dukie since I know he has some expertise here but all are welcome.

    Is there any way to make Windows Media Center work with my Xbox 360 through either my laptop (Vista Home Basic 32 bit) or desktop (Windows XP SP2 32 bit)? Or failing that, is there any way at all I can get either to be able to see my Xbox 360 on the network, or get my 360 to see either computer?

    You won't be able to use Windows Media Center, because it seems like both of those operating systems do not have Media Center. Windows Media Center is only available on the following operating systems:

    Windows XP Media Center Edition Version 2003
    Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005
    Windows Vista Home Premium (32 or 64-bit)
    Windows Vista Ultimate (32 or 64-bit)
    Windows Vista Enterprise (32 or 64-bit)
    Windows 7 Home Premium (32 or 64-bit)
    Windows 7 Professional (32 or 64-bit)
    Windows 7 Ultimate (32 or 64-bit)
    Windows 7 Enterprise (32 or 64-bit)

    You can use your Xbox 360 to play media files (photos, music and videos) from your PC.

    On Windows XP you will need to install Media Sharing or Windows Media Player 11. Try this tutorial to make sure you have what you need:

    On Windows Vista, you will need to enable media sharing on your network. Go to this page to find out how to enable it:
