    Windows Media Center Extender Vista and Xbox 360

    I am using windows vista ultimate and I get a message error on my xbox 360.
    The Xbox 360 has experienced a failure and was disconnected from the media
    center based PC. Would you like to reconnect?
    Vista Ultimate is installed on my laptop for work and I wanted to see how
    this works but never got it connected.
    I was able to determine that the cause was the Novell Client for Vista
    version 1.x, it seems all versions cause this problem. Now I need the client
    for work and have already filled a bug report with Novell but have not been
    able to see were to report a bug with MS. I assume it is a Novell issue but I
    have seen MS KB fixes for novell so wanted to report it to both sides.
    This never worked with or without sp1 for vista.
    Anyone else see this or have a suggestion to resolve it. Thanks

    Use a computer that you actually own, that you don't need the Novell
    Client for Vista installed.

    I know I wouldn't want my employees installing non-work crap on my
    computers.

    Oh come on now. You have employees? They are called associates. Working
    at BestBuy, I understand they are called associates. You are among the
    associates. Now go put on your vest and help the walk-in customers.

    I was speaking hypothetically. But don't you agree with me? Would you
    want one of your employees installing the Xbox BS on one of your
    business's computers?

    No. I do agree with you. You had me scared for a minute. I thought you
    had employees!

    I am the IT department and I wanted to see if media center was worth it
    before I buy vista ultimate for home use, but I can't be the only person
    experiencing a problem. Plus media center xtender does not install anything
    on the machine from what I understand the xbox just uses the machine as a
    portal. Any in my job the there are some people who get what ever they want
    installed or added and I'm forced to do so. So I'm sure this will crop up as
    a problem sooner or later when someones kid uses their laptop.
    I posted here for solutions not criticism. Either provide usefull feedback
    or please don't bother posting.
    Thank you

    What is "usefull" (sic) is highly subjective, as I believe that criticism
    is useful, and you don't.

    > or please don't bother posting.


    Sorry, but China doesn't own the USENET yet, so I'll post whenever I damn
    well please.

    Isn't anarchy great! (That's just a joke, NSA)
