    well when you try to do it with the unupdated version, it tells you to go to the site and download the patch, as well as the program itself for the pc. so it doesn't make much sense for it to require live, but i haven't checked the site, so i can't really say

    I tried last night, and here is what I found.

    I couldn't get my pc to see my xbox. But I beleive that may be due to my switcher as I have disabled all but 1 firewalls which allows media connect to run. But it was late and I couldn't be bothered resetting everything, so I'll try again tonight.

    There is nothing that says you require live, but without windows media centre installed on your pc you can only stream music an pictures.

    So you'll need windows media centre on your pc to stream video. That is all up to personal opinion, and I dont think I would use that enough to warrant dropping xp pro.

    Its up to you though.

    Good luck.


    When in doubt, neck two, you\'ll have a better night....

    I understood that even though it was a local network, the PC must have an internet connection. This is where Live comes in because if you have your PC connected to your 360 with the PC having to be online, the 360 will automatically go online as well.

    From everything I have gathered (although, my 360 wasn't recognised by the pc) you need the internet to download media connect and thats about it.

    Of course, with the media centre pc you can stream from the internet then stream to the 360. As far as I could see there was nothing that said your 360 NEEDED live.

    I spent about 2 hours trying to do this last night, reading up on all the trouble shooters etc. but again, I didn't connect, and I do have live so either way when it does work it'll be alright except without windows media centre I can only get music and photos
