I was having the same issue as everyone here - could not connect to my media center PC with my Xbox 360 - yet I could see the 360 on the network.

I followed all of the instructions here and none worked for me. But they did get me looking and I was able to fix my issue.

While in the "services" list (and mind you I'm on Windows 8 Pro retail) - I found the following service disabled:

Media Center Extender Service - Disabled.

I set it to "Automatic" and started it - and my problem is now gone. Works great.

So I hope this helps others who may have this issue.

Thanks to those before me for posting their fixes!
