HELP - Connecting Xbox 360 as Extender

I am trying to connect my Xbox 360 as an extender to Media Centre but it keeps saying that McAfee firewall is blocking it. I have tried disabling Mcafee firewall but it still says the same message. I have tried restoring firewall back to default but this hasnt helped either. I have a Dell Inspiron on Windows 7 64bit.

Re: HELP - Connecting Xbox 360 as Extender

Hi,

Thanks for your reply but I have already followed these links and there is no info on there to stop Mcafee firewall blocking the Media Centre. It would seem this is a very common issue an I find it extremely frustrating that I pay for a service that is stopping me from streaming media. I have been on Mcafee's online support and they couldnt help either........

Someone must have an answer....

Same issue with McAfee Firewall disabled?  Could be an issue with the router not allowing that traffic.  Or maybe try with McAfee comletely uninstalled, maybe McAfee should be reinstalled to resolve an issue.  I also use the Xbox 360 as Extender with McAfee running and have no issues at all.

Was having the same issue today...

Took a risk but I disabled Mcafee for 15 minutes and did the "Add extender" set up in Windows Media Center. Set up completed and it's working/streaming fine through my Xbox although i havn't reset my PC so not sure if it's a definite fix yet.

Good luck dude!

So Mcafee reenabled it still works?
