WMC, network shares and xbox360 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an xbox 360, windows vista ultimate and a linux server which I am using as a fileshare.

    Currently I can view all my music and my video (which is on my linux server) through the media tab on the xbox, but in order to do that I had to do a registry hack to allow windows Media Player on my vista machine to share everything in its library even if it was on another machine, eg my linux server.  This is currently working

    However....
    I really want to use my xbox as a media center extender.  Currently I can view all my media in Media Center on vista, but when I go to the xbox I only see content from my vista box, nothing that was shared to my media center library from my linux box.

    I think all I need to do is another registry hack in the Vista machine running Media Center, but I can't find any details anywhere... HELP!
