I have 2 XboX’s connected to my Virgin (Not-so) SuperHub and for about 2 months now I have been losing connection when watching videos through my wired XboX. I have been through the process of re-booting everything (PC/Router/XboX) to see if the problem would go away but it wont and it seems that I have to leave it more than a day before it will connect again, but then drop connection again shortly after. I tried my other wireless XboX this morning and it does the same, drops connection so far into watching a video off the PC.
I don’t get this problem when playing games after signing in on my XboX Live profile!!!
Is there a problem with Xbox Live or something (But then, my last statement disses this question…)
If I call the Virgin media tech helpline, the second I mention I’m running Ubuntu, I get ‘what’s that’ and after mentioning linux I get ‘Sorry, we can’t help you, it’s not Window$’. SO… VM are totally useless.
If your wired Xbox has a static IP, use that IP for the Xbox ports, and Ushare ports.
You don’t need to select services, they’re just there for faster loading of common ports.
I think the problem may be that, because the Ushare directory contains symlinks to the drives with a lot of content it isn’t able to handle it. This is a common bug within Ushare itself sadly and I don’t think it’s ever been addressed.
Still test it out with the command I gave above, and let me know how you get on.
I don’t think it has a static IP Address.
I managed to give my wireless printer a static IP Address a while ago but have no idea how I did it (and didn’t name it), so don’t know how to go back and give it a name.
I entered the info in but nothing has taken, something to do with the port forwarding local IP Address. Invalid Local IP Address.
It needs to be something other than ..0.0
Just got off the phone…
As usual, a foreign call advisor. got me to go to some web page using an IP address and then enter an access code that downloads a WINDOW$ program. Guess what… I DON’T RUN WINDOW$, told the guy that and no surprises what his response was. he then passed me onto the tech help that you have to pay for (which he DIDN’T tell me) and they responded the same… NO WINDOWS… NO HELP.
Your able to access your network settings from the dash inside the Xbox. ??? You shouldn’t need to “connect” to your Xbox.
The thread about Xbox Live being down is irrelevant to this issue. Since we’re dealing with the LAN and not the WAN, it has no affect on your internet, or Xbox.
If you really want a Virgin techie to answer your questions, you’ll have to lie to him that you run Windows. It’s the only way you’ll ever get through something and since your run Linux, phoning Virgin is pretty much useless unless you need to report a fault with the Superhub or Cisco TiVO TV box.
Let’s start fresh. Ushare is undoubtly very unstable, so I’ve gone to the liberty of finding another way for you to connect your Xbox to your PC in order to stream files.
The way we’re going to use WILL have a GUI so you won’t have to type in commands… as much.
I’m going to create a video showing how to do, and then I’ll post it here. Just sit tight, and if you’ve port forwarded anything just delete those.
I recommend you keep your Xbox with a static IP though, it’ll come in handy.
