I tried to post this question in the General section, it didn't work and I was more or less redirected here, so here comes.
First of all, I don't want to start a flamewar about XBox or PS3. I bought the Xbox because friends of mine have one to. It is fun to play on Xbox Live. Now for the problem.
When I wanted to connect my (Ubuntu) laptop to the Xbox to share music, movies and so forth. In the beginning I used Ushare, a nice little program. The only problem I had was that the Xbox lost connection every 5 minutes or so. I blamed it on Ushare, so I tried another program, XBMC. It looks great and is easy to use. The only thing is, that the problem still exists. I changed the network settings on the Xbox from, manual to automatic, but that didn't help. I searched the Internet (well, the pages Google offered me anyway) but couldn't find a solution, to this problem.
Here is some further background information:
- My router has uPnP enabled.
- The connection to the router from my Xbox is wired.
- The laptop is using a wireless connection to my router.
- I use Ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty Jackalope).
The strange thing is that everything seems to work, because I can play a couple of songs for example.
Too be honest, I have no idea if this is a Linux problem, a Ubuntu problem or a Xbox problem, or a combination of them. I don't own a computer loaded with BillieVanilli software, so I can't test that. Is there anybody experiencing the same problem, or am I the only one
I hope someone can help me.
Thanks in advance.
