Step 2: TVersity - Streaming Program
Once you have installed this program, enable the "TVersity media server" in the start menu.
Now open the TVersity GUI (program) and go through the transcoder settings and change them so that it suits whatever console you have. i.e. bit rate, connection type, wireless/wired, resolution, etc
Now, turn on the Xbox 360 console and go to the Media blade (blue background). Go to either video, music or pictures and search for computers on the network.
If you are already connected to a computer and want to disconnect from it, go to the System blade (purple background) and go to computers>windows based pc>disconnect. Remember, you can only connect to 1 computer at a time.
Once you have disconnected from the computer you are currently connected to, go back to the media blade and go to videos>computer. A message should come up detailing how to connect to a computer - press "yes, continue"
It should now start searching for windows based pc's that are connected on the LAN.
Once it has finished searching it should come up with a list of computers on your network. Click on "TVersity on (Computer Name)" (TVersity basically acts like another computer on the LAN)
If TVersity installed and worked correctly, then this option should come up, otherwise, if it doesn't, then you have a problem with your Xbox finding TVersity. I tried a different computer as I have 2, but if you only have 1, then I suggest going to the TVersity forums, there is a lot of help there.
The only things that i can suggest at this point are the following....
- Check you windows firewall by going to start>control panel>windows firewall.
Either change the programs being blocked by the windows firewall or turn the firewall off.... this isnt recommended but just turn it off if everything else fails
- Check your network settings by going into my network places and programs and clicking on view network connections on the side of the window. From here, right click on the connection u are currently using and click on properties.
Once inside properties, scroll down the list until you see "internet protocol (TCP/IP)". Double click and make sure both the IP and DNS server addresses are obtained automatically.... Having a number in here may cause a conflict with the router resulting in your computer not showing up anywhere, this even means you might not be able to use your internet connection.
*Note - The second point may even solve any network conflicts you are having. By having this obtained automatically, you are letting your router do the work for you rather than doing it yourself. This often solves the "limited or no connectivity" issue not related to the xbox 360.
Once you have the TVersity media server working perfectly, and it's accessible from the Xbox 360 dashboard, continue with the final step.
