You are not alone. I am having the same problem. Like you, I can also stream movies and music to my xbox from my PC. However, I cannot connect to the media center. Getting the same errors as you. Have you found a fix for your problem yet by any chance?
Connection terminated is commonly caused by a 3rd party application trying to run in the Media Center session. The mcx rdp connection was designed to disconnect if an application tried to create a visible window. I'd suggest looking in the below locations and cleanup what isn't essential from your All Users and removing just about everything from the MCX User accounts
Per User, replace with the proper username for your extender. On Vista your default name will be mcx1, mcx2, ..... For registry keys you'll have to do an extra step. Open regedit.exe. Go to HKEY_USERS. Go to File -> Load Hive -> %HOMEDRIVE%\Users\\NTUSER.dat. You'll need to replace . Hit Ok, Name it mcxuser.
After finishing it is a best practice to unload the key you loaded above. To do so select HKEY_USERS\mcxuser and File -> Unload Hive.
Hope this helps
Hi, I'm not sure I fully understand those directions but I will give that a shot when I get home from work today. (I've tried just about every other suggestion I could find on the topic and at least your's is one I haven't seen yet.) I do really appreciate the help with this.
As a side note: Since experiencing this problem, I've tried a clean install of windows, with nothing else installed and the firewall turned off and the problem still existed. So then I went through all the Microsoft important updates and problem still exists. The only update I didn't install was the cumulative update for Media Center TV Pack from June of 2009. The first time I installed that one my Media Center had some issues.
My brother is also coming over tonight with his XBox 360 to rule out the possibility that there is an issue on that end.
Thanks again for your reply.
I had a similar problem and I found the answer, I have a negear dg834v5 router modem. In its set up it has a Qos setup for multimedia files. I unchecked the Qos box and it also has a check box to enable wmm (wifi multi media settings). I am guessing WMC through Xbox or the extender doesn't support wmm. As now the wmm box is unchecked it streams TV an movies perfectly. I am running win 7 64 bit, Cheers.
I hope this helps you guys as this answer took me a long time to find. Good Luck. Mark
