WINDOWS 8.1 DEVICES PLAY-TO FUNCTIONALITY

by gokeisit / June 10, 2014 8:07 AM PDT

Microsoft blames XBOX, XBOX blames Windows, after hours with each in both chat and phone I am stuck...

Problem is::
ACER ASPIRE V5-571P
WINDOWS 8 (8.1 with all current updates and drivers0
DEVICES > PLAY-TO > XBOX 360

Was using flawlessly with ie, video and audio files through XBOX Video and XBOX Audio prior to early May. Now works only ten percent of the time. When it does work, there is no pause or search functionality.

No changes were made to pc around time issue developed.

Windows and Avast are the only thugs set to auto update.

Since both Windows and Xbox are from Microsoft, I'd Microsoft is the only one to blame.

Now the very first thing to do is to try this Xbox on another PC/laptop, and another Xbox on this PC. This simple experiment will show you what needs repair (either software or hardware) or replacement. My guess (not really based on anything): a new Xbox will function correctly.

It appears the ISP wants you to call it in?
