WMP 11/Vista can’t share media to XBox360 anymore.

Monday, March 23rd, 2009

Today I was messing about with TVersity (trying to get streaming to iPods working), and got to a point where I deinstalled the software.

This then caused an issue with the Windows Media Player sharing setup with my Xboxes. Problem is in Vista there is no such thing as a deinstall/reinstall (which probably would have fixed it).

After a bit of searching I found this little gem…

TVersity on its uninstall had stopped the uPnP Device host service. I tried to restart it and that failed. Hmm. After looking at the dependencies of that service I found that it relied on the SSDP Discovery service. So I set that to auto and started it, set the uPnP Device host service to auto and restarted and behold, Media Sharing fires into life again.

I’m a fan of the XBox 360, the price these days for a combined DVD, Media center Extender and games console is so low its hard not to be, however every once in a while an issue that comes up that isn’t necessarily easily explained out there in Cyberspace.
