    i got connect 360 for my mac to stream stuff of my mac to the 360. Whenever i want to stream 720p and 1080p content it gives me an error that is doesnt support it. Plus i tried it on the windows side and it still doesnt work. I think its the low airport card. I dont think it can stream such high content. The file works for sure since i tried it through a flash drive but it just wont serve. Just want some help or answers of what to do here.:)

    Well first things first, what kind of router do you have? 802.11g? Also, I remember having to allow Connect360 to access certain ports through the firewall, did you allow that?

    are you using the proper formats? it's very picky about what it can play. if you're using HD content it needs to be WMV or H.264 in an MP4 or MOV container i think.

    My guess is it's going to be a codec error. What are you encoding it with? Also, make sure your Connect360 is up to date. Version 3.0 was supposed to allow H.264 streaming but it had problems playing media that was encoded in Handbrake but would play some from iSquint. Version 3.1 fixed virtually every problem I had with any of my media.
