I'm hosting a Tversity instance on my Windows 2008 server and sharing some media. My PS3 detects this as a DNLA device and can play back the media just fine.

Tversity shows up on my Xbox 360, but when i click on it, it just loads and loads and after a minute it times out and tells me it can't connect.

Has anyone successfully gotten this working?

What is the codec the video encoded with? The Xbox 360 may not support that format, where the PS3 does.

Its almost always caused by a firewall , well it has been for me at least. To test very quickly disable all firewalls on the PC and try connecting. Also i remember a 360 specific encoding option in the settings.

no firewall on the host PC. 360, PS3 and PC are on the same subnet. Works fine on the PS3. – NoCarrier Nov 11 '09 at 17:32
