XBOX 360

Thought I would try the xbox 360 as a extender for vista and get an error on
the xbox when it tries to connect to the pc:

"this discs region code is incorrect for this console"

Anyone else seen this? got a workaround ?

Which region are you in at the moment, and which version of Vista are you
running? Also, I don't know much about Xbox's to be honest, however which
game are you playing?

It could be like standard DVD's - if you have a European DVD, you can only
really play it on a European DVD player or one that has the option to. Maybe
the disk you're playing with is incompatible with the web service, or the
actual Xbox itself?

It is a UK XBOX 360 and I guess Vista is US version(?)

The strange thing is that I am not trying to play a disk, the error is
displayed as soon as the xbox tries to connect as part of setting it up as
an extender to the vista machine.

Oh well, will just have to go back to XP MCE :-(

media player. but still get the same error..

yet :-(

I have exactly the same issue.... I checked all the various locale settings
and they're all UK.

I can't find anything that says whether the Vista Beta 2 version (that I
downloaded from MSDN) is a 'US' version.... anyone know if/how you can
check ???

Nope - they've been localised to US English, Japanese and German. That's it
for Beta 2 until they release the MUI's or they create localised copies
towards the RC1/2 branches.

I guess you are just gonna have wait until Vista localized for UK and
available there to support the XBOX. Right now, the only languages I am
aware of that have been localized are US English, German, Simplified Chinese
and German.

Not that I know of - it should have been fixed already though because loads
of people have had trouble with it.
Feel disappointed - feel very disappointed :blush:(

Well I probably could, but then would not be able to use UK DVDs and Games
on it...

Seems odd that this restriction exists but never mind.

In order for them to listen to their WMP 11 playlists and watch their Videos
they will need to install a program on their PCs to get this to work. They
need to go to:
http://www.xbox.com/en-US/pcsetup
Once there, they can hit the setup button and it will install the program
they need.
If they have Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005, this will install the
Windows Media Extender program, which will give the Xbox 360 full access to
all Media Center files, and media.
If they do not have Media Center, this installs Windows Media Connect 2.0,
which will let them listen to music, watch video and look at pictures, but
nothing that would require a codec that does not come with WMP.

If they would like some information on Windows Media Extender, they can
check out this link:
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/mediacenter/extender/setup/default.mspx

If they would like some information on Windows Media Connect, they can check
out this link:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/devices/wmconnect/faq.aspx

For additional information on both programs, they can check out this link:
