Connect360 syncs Mac, Xbox

Nullriver has released Connect360, an application for Mac OS X that allows an Xbox 360 to play back music and view digital photos stored on a Macintosh. "Connect360 automatically indexes your iTunes and iPhoto libraries and shares them to your Xbox 360. You can then use the Xbox 360 Dashboard to browse and play your media, organized in the exact same way that it is on your Mac." Connect360 keeps the Xbox up to date as content is added or removed from the iTunes library, and the application supports MP3 audio files alongside JPEG photos. A built-in access control list can limit which Xbox 360s can connect to a Mac, and the software supports wireless connections as well as the Xbox's built-in network port. Connect360 requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later, and is priced at $10.

    what 360?

    perhaps this would be useful if one could buy an xbox 360 first.

    I scored an XBox Live at Tartget. The local GameStop has the core system pretty much all the time now. It took less than five minutes to get this up and running, and it is way cool! My wife and both have big goofy grins right now. We had no idea about this. Talk about a nice surprise.

    i got the program and and I'm having difficulty getting it to connect. I think it might be and IP address problem with my airport express. did you have to do anything special? I have 3 green checks beside each item and it sees my xbox360, but I don't know how to access thru the dashboard. I have my firewall off (at least for now) and have itunes and iphoto running just in case they have to be open. any help or pointers you can provide would be appreciated...

    Perhaps it would be useful if there were a link to the companies site?

    Choose PC as the source

    Choose PC as the source from the Media section of the dashboard...should see your mac...worked like a charm for me.

    Using Airport Express

    Make sure you turn off NAT translation on the Airport Express and just set it to DHCP. For some reason NAT interferes with the Mac and Xbox ability to talk with each other.
