I know this should be a simple step, but IĄŻm having trouble. I cannot connect to my Xbox. I think I followed the steps in XNA to connect but I must be doing something wrong. IĄŻve created a key on the Xbox, installed it in XNA Express, clicked ok (even rebooted both) but my Xbox is stuck on Connect to Computer. It connects to Live just fine. IĄŻve also disabled my PC firewall just incase that is the issue (I have a home firewall). IĄŻm on the same subnet. OS is Media Center. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

Load an XNA 360 project into GSE and run it in the debugger by pressing F5. The XNA launcher doesn't actually do anything but sit there waiting for deployment from the computer until you run an executable via the IDE. The message it displays is kind of confusing here the first time.

Thanks for the quick reply. I should have included this message:

Error 1 The connection timed out before reaching host MyXbox360. Make sure that MyXbox360 is connected on your local subnet and waiting for a connection. 0 0

I have verified this info.

I think I was having a difficult time telling the difference between a B and 8 on my XBOX. With a new key, I'm connecting now.

Oh, yeah, that would explain it. The 8/B and 1/Is are pretty confusing in that font. They should leave those out of the generated connection keys.
