After installing Windows Live OneCare, I'm no longer able to share media to my XBox 360. What's wrong?

A. Although the Windows Media Connect application is enabled in the OneCare firewall, the required ports for communication aren't open. To resolve the problem, perform these steps:

  1. Start the Windows Live OneCare console (right-click the OneCare taskbar icon, which is normally a green circle with 1 in it, and select "Open Windows Live OneCare.")
  2. On the left side of the OneCare dialog box under Other Tasks, click the "View or change settings" link.
  3. On the "Windows Live OneCare Settings" dialog box, select the Firewall tab.
  4. Click the "Advanced settings" button.
  5. Select the "Ports and Protocols" tab on the "Advanced settings" dialog box.
  6. Select the check boxes for "Universal Plug and Play - Windows Media Connect (TCP 2869)" and "Universal Plug and Play - Xbox 360 (UDP 1900)," as the figureshows.
  7. Click OK to close all open dialog boxes.
