Hello,

I wasn't sure where to actually post this topic in firewall or programs, so I thought, since it's a firewall issue, this might suffice. Anywho...

My AVG Internet Security suite seems to be blocking my Windows Media Center from contacting my XBox 360 and I've tried all sorts of things in the Firewall settings, by allowing full access, allowing all ports, and nothing seems to be working. And also, I am using Windows 7 Home Premium if that helps to narrow it down some. Anywho, does anyone know how I can allow my Windows Media Center to contact my Xbox 360 with my Firewall still active? Cuz I really don't want to have to turn off my Firewall every time I use Windows Media Center on my Xbox 360,

Any and all Help is appreciated.

Thanks in Advance,
Donald :)

Hello,

Sorry for the late reply. Anywho, I took a look at that link you gave me, and I can't seem to find the part about the "Various System Services" in my applications list. I have searched and searched for it, but it is not there. So instead of that part, I tried adding that to the WMPNETWK and it still didn't work.

I'm not sure what else to try.

Donald

Well, then this is a question to someone who uses this program as well or knows it well enough...
What I can propose, though, is contacting AVG Customer Services - if you paid for that program, I believe you have right to use their support service...

Yes, I did purchase their software, a 2 year service. I'll give that a try. Thank you. :)
