I am not new to this and I DO know what I'm doing. I have the network set up the way it always has been. Its ethernet, and its going through the switch and Fios router. I recently downloaded Starz Play and it works great on my Desktop, Laptop, but NOT on my 360. I have been streaming Vista MCE to it for months, and it all works GREAT with no network interference of any sort. The application doesnt show my 360 as an available device for it to extend to, so I am stumped. I searched the interwebs already, so any advice is more than appreciated. Thanks!

From Starz Play FAQ under "Connect to your TV"

 

"Connecting Starz Play To Your TV

    Starz Play offers many very simple ways of connecting Starz Play to your TV for your viewing pleasure. For XP MCE and Vista MCE users you can choose to connect your TV to your computer Using the XBOX 360 as an extender.

It's easy to have room-to-room entertainment throughout your home with a PC running Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 and Xbox 360. All you need are a few components to get things started:

    • A PC running Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 or Vista with MCE
    • An Xbox 360 with the Xbox 360 Wireless Media Adapter
    • A wired or wireless (preferably 802.11a) home network
    • A broadband Internet connection

With your Media Center PC hooked up to your home network, you're ready to introduce the Xbox 360 to the mix so you can start enjoying your photos, music, movies, and recorded TV in other rooms of your home. You can experience all this in high-definition if you've got a TV or monitor that can deliver it.

Please Click Here for step by step instructions from Microsoft on connecting XBOX 360 to your PC as a media extended.

Again, any help is appreciated.

You would need to go into the media center on your xbox. I assume that it puts plug in on you WMC. So you want have a option to stream from the "Starz" directly, but indirectly from WMC. I never used it but that would be the logical way.
