Smile MCE Extender interface

I recently installed Vista Transformation pack 6.0 and on top of transforming my Windows Media Center 2005 into a Vista look, it also changed the Media Center interface, on my computer, my Linksys Extender and the xBox360.

So if you are tired of the interface, tried it, you 'll see, it looks like you have upgraded your extender. Very nice.

I'm just tired of MCE extender on my 360 period. I use transcode360 to get over the obvious barriers, but I still get stuttering if its not wmv (connected wired and the computer is a X2 4200+), the extenders are not usable with plugins Ive tried as they seem to be linked in to the userID and the 360's userid has a generated password, I often get disconnected if I leave it in pause for more than a few minutes and it has to reconnect, losing my place, the interface is very slow in responding to input, etc. etc. Sorry about the run on sentence, but I'm just really disappointed in the end result of all this hardware and software. It would be much better if I could simply connect the computer to the tv directly and use a remote on that.

So, why don't you do just that?

You get stuttering when playing back recorded television as well? Honestly, it sounds like there's an issue there. You're not going to get around the issues with playback of unsupported formats unfortunately, but the overall performance you're seeing is nothing like my experience.
Do you have any firewall or antivirus software running on the PC? What router are you using for your network? And is there any way to try changing out the network cable?
