View Full Version : Installing Connect360 with NXE on Xbox 360

Jul 19, 2009, 06:49 PM
Hi, I've just started trying to use Connect360 with my Xbox 360. Everything seems hunky dory on my Mac's end, but my Xbox won't detect the Mac. Any ideas? I'm posting this because most of the help topics are for the pre-NXE Xbox 360, and they don't help too much :mad:

Thanks in advance for your advice!

Nothing changed as far as streaming goes with the NXE, so the old help topics should be all you need. Only new codecs were added.

The most common problem is the OS X Firewall or Little Snitch blocking access, followed by EyeTV (specifically EyeTV Connect) using the same ports.

Well, that's what I thought at first. I've forwarded all possible ports on my router (88, 2074, 3074), set a static IP for the Xbox, and it will connect always to Xbox Live with no problem. I've checked Little Snitch and told it to allow Connect360's connection (I created a rule with the preference pane itself...is there another process it uses to connect that LS might be blocking?) to no avail. As I said, at the Connect360 preference pane says sharing is active, it just doesn't find my Xbox. And the Xbox is fine but it won't detect Connect360.
