    I know this isn't directly related to mac or pc gaming, but I cannot seem to connect my macbook to my xbox 360 to stream files with either rivet or connect360.

    I use peerguardian and little snitch to filter connections, but I have both of these filters disabled and it still wont recognize my mac. I am running snow leopard, does this mean the latest rivet and connect360 versions are only compatible with lion?

    I have this problem occasionally. I just have to turn off both the Mac and Xbox. Then turn on my mac first then the console and it works. Idk what causes it to not connect but it's only like once a week

    I tried this and still no luck. It must be my mac, I thought "ifconfig en0" in terminal gave you your ip address and such? I wanted to make sure I didn't need to change it in Rivet, but this is the message I got
