Actually, this question may be on topic as it is very close to my issue.
I use the Live OneCAre Firewall so this issue belongs here, I think.
1. I have my music on WHS.
2. I use an XBOX with Media Center Extender to access the library through the wireless network.
3. I can see all of the music in the MCE Library on the extender.
4. When I go to play the music on the extender, I get this error:
A firewall or Network Configuration issue is preventing media playback. Search Windows Vista Help for information on how to set up your network and firewall.
5. I have checked the advanced settings and the the following are allowed:
Media Center Extender Manager
Media Center Extensibility Host
Windows Media Center Host
Windows Media Center Receiver
Windows Media Center Store
Windows media Player
Windows Media Player Network
Windows Windows Home Server
Windows Home Server Console
6. I have checked my wireless firewall and since it allows the xbox to connect and do everything else, that is not the issue.
7. I have given permissions for access to "guest" on the Windows Home Server which should enable anyone including the MCExtender to connect
8. I have given permissions to share through Windows Media Player
I don't know what more to do here.
Can you help??

I just had this problem when adding a second Xbox 360 to my home network. I resolved it by going into Windows Media Player 11, and then clicking Library and selecting the Media Sharing option. You should see your Xbox in the list - just right click on it and enable it and all should be fine.

YES! GraemeReynolds is absolutely correct!
I was getting the same notice that PC did not recognize the Xbox console. In my case, I just got a new Xbox sent back to me after getting the Red Ring of Death on my old console. Go through the initial setup and then after that, use Windows Media Player and the Media Sharing option. Again, in my case, I saw my old Xbox icon with a checkmark and another new one with the exclamation icon. Simply allow sharing to the new one and voila.
Too easy.Tuesday, September 15, 2009 5:00 AM
