My question is can you change the Source "PC"?
when you go into the dashboard and you choose music.
than theres like 4 sources you can pick from and the bottom one is the PC.
the pc that is on there does not work for me and i would like to change it to a PC that does work in my house.

Can't you just search for another source?

Well is your 360 connected to the same network as your PC? There's several options you could choose to run on your PC, including the Zune Software, Windows Media Player, and Windows Media Center. Pick your poison.

If you are using windows media player 11 you have to allow the 360 to access the music on your pc, its on one of the options and you just select it and its hould work, other than that sorry i have no idea

Download Orb (www.orb.com) and set it up. Then you can stream just fine :)

I never got Windows Media Player to stream stuff correctly so I got the older Windows Media Connect program. Works perfectly for me, music and videos.
