Is there any way to connect to a smb network share through the programs option, it only shows local drives and you cant search for a network share like you can within video or music. I have the latest xbmc version.

Thanks

Welcome to the xbox-HQ man, we hope you enjoy the site.

What is it your trying to link to on your PC with the SMB share?
Most files on your PC wont show up in smb share unless you serch for them from the file manager.

Thanks for the welcome, great site!

I wanted to be able to play games form there in the same way as I do movies and music. I can copy the games onto it (its a smb standalone network box) and would have thought that it would be a simple step from there to playing games over the network?

Im probably missing something vital though! Smile

You cant play games (iso) off a pc hdd onto a xbox like you can music and movies. You will have to have them on the Xbox hdd.

ren3gade is right, you cant play games off the PC hdd since it transferrate is so slow.
It wold make the game one big load screen.
