Before I upgraded to Windows 8, I was able to stream my music with a picture slideshow with the standard music/picture apps under MEDIA on the XBOX. I also would do it with Windows Media Center.
Now on Windows 8, I go into the Music Player or Picture Viewer and it see's my main PC (PCNAME:MEDIA) but when it tries to play or located media, it will say it isn't found. I've checked every possible firewall or sharing setting and nothing will get it to see music or pictures. Under pictures, I can drill into a folder and see thumbnails and even bring a picture up but it refuses to do a slideshow. Under music, no matter if you close Album, Artist, Song, etc...it will spin for a while and then say NO MUSIC FOUND.
An alternative is Windows Media Center with Windows 8 (recently released) but it is much slower than before and no longer plays ZunePass music.
So, how do I get my XBOX to see my media, fully?

I even tried all of this:
Streaming Media from your PC to your Xbox 360 - 09 - Using Apps on Xbox LIVE - Xbox Support - Xbox.com Forums - Xbox.comNothing...I did have password protected sharing on and I turned it off. I don't have a network called HOME...I have PRIVATE and Public...both called vEthernet.
I am really stumped...

Here is more info.
I go into the XBOX guide.
I slide over to MEDIA.
I choose picture viewer. It shows my shared pictures folder.
If I try SLIDESHOW at this point, it fails and says no pictures found. If I go into that directory and try SLIDESHOW, same thing, no pictures found.
If I drill down into a directory, I can see pictures. I can even do a slideshow of that directory.
When I try music, it always says no music found when at the first selection of Artist or Album. If I drill down into one of those categories, instead of showing me the songs, albums or artists, it starts to build current playlist and it may perhaps play a song or two.
Any suggestions at all?
