    Hi, Bit of a Mac newbie, just seen the light and got rid of the PC. Running Tiger on a PMG4 networked via a Hub. Running an Xecuter 2 chip with EvoX dash. Any idea how to network the two??

    FTP is the only way to go.

    set your Xbox's IP to static. mines at 192.168.2.3 (running computer network seperately), then set your macs Ethernet IP to 192.168.2.1. wham bam thank you mam.

    make sure Passive mode is turned off.

    oh the default Xbox log on is
    user: xbox
    pass: xbox

    FTP, of course. works like a charm. now set up XBMC and stream your data ;)

    one last thing, ive found EvoX to be VERY slow when copying files to/from the Xbox. taking hours to copy a DVD across, XBMC was very fast. taking just 10 seconds to copy over a 250Mb video

    Ok, if you're networking to put games on the HDD of the Xbox, you want to use Transmit (shareware). It's the best FTP client I've ever used (aside from Flash FXP for Windows) and you can safely edit the .ini files from within the program (which you will have to do, if you plan on using XBMC to stream videos / photos / music / whatever (porn)). Great stuff.

    Next, you need to install the XBMS X on your mac. After that, well, you'll have to config everything...if you need any help with that, post or PM me.

    if you are feeling very adventurous, you could attempt to install xbgm# it looks quite promising. It is similar in functionality to Qwix, but made in mono so it relatively platform independent. You will need to have a stiff drink with you when you attempt to download and compile GTK# for the mac, the mono page has some step by step instructions, but i gave up :-(

    Xbgm#
    Mono, GTK
    Fink

    So would this help me put my music on the xbox for custom soundtracks? I've always wanted to put my own music on Burnout 3 but didn't want to re rip my CDs and there's no CDDB on the xbox either. Will my ID3 tags work?
