    The fitter installed evolution x dashboard for me.

    This is by no means going to be an idiot proof guide, but here goes.

    If I was you Id connect up my Xbox to my pc and use ftp to copy the Xbox Media Centre to your E drive in apps folder, in XBMC folder.

    Go to Evox network settings and see if you can see the IP address its using make a note of this and connect it to your hub or router via a straight cable. Or via a crossover cable stright to your computers network card.

    Download "Flash FXP" and try to connect to your xbox with the IP address and username: xbox password: xbox port:21. You need to make sure your firewall is not going to block the connection.


    Or you could try downloading "Craxion 4" and converting the contents of the XBMC folder to an ISO and then burning it to disc using "DVD Decrypter" or "Nero" (or something else). You would then need to insert the disc into your Xbox and (I dout that it will start automatically) then go into your file browser and copy the contents of the disc to E:\Apps\XBMC.


    You could try just going to launch (at bottem of list in EvoX)and select then select Apps, the fitter may have already installed some programs for you.
