Media Center Extender query
I have a PC with Vista Home Premium.

I've previously had, this year, 2 Xbox 360s, which "paired" no problem with
Vista Media Center, and worked as Extenders perfectly. I'm now on my 3rd
Xbox 360, and this time when I try to "pair" them, my Vista PC says it's
trying to find drivers for the Xbox 360 Extender, but when I click "Locate &
Install....", it searches for a while, then says it can't find them, and asks
me for the disc that came with my device, which obviously it never came with
one.

I'm not sure why it's doing this, but it's very frustrating. Any ideas?

Power up your Xbox 360 and download the new desktop that includes some
enhancements.

Erm, this problem has only been happening SINCE the new update. My 2
previous consoles without the update worked fine as Extenders.
