Does Microsoft have drivers for allowing the Xbox One to be a Media extender like the 360 was on a Home PC network. My Win 7 PC can add a device but the Xbox One won't function.
Error that I get is "Digital Media Renderer doesn't have a driver"
One of my favorite features of my 360 was that I could share all my music/video's from my Win 7 Home PC.
Hey Dorkiller No1,
You still can do that same thing but I believe believe you need to have Win8. The link that I want to attach for use is not working but as soon as it does I will post. You also have the option to use the Cloud and stream through Xbox Music. This method requires you to have a music pass. Just another option for you to have. Again as soon I get the link I will share.
Reach back and let us know if you have any other questions.
Not interested in using the Cloud Services other than skydrive. Still need a solution
I too would like a solution to this, other than upgrading to windows 8 :-S

Ok, so a bit more investigation shows that despite the digital media renderer driver error, once the Xbox One has been added as a device on your W7 PC/Laptop it will still stream video and music...
You need to have the appropriate app running on your Xbox One - Xbox Music or Xbox Video - then right click the item and choose "play to" and select your xbox one.
Some formats don't seem to be supported and sometimes it seems a bit random as to whether it accepts a format/file or not... I managed to stream a video, when trying the same file a second time it said it was "unsupported", a third attempt said it was fine again... that's technology for ya though.
OS: Windows 7
I solved this issue by going to Devices and Printers> Right click on Xbox-system OS> Remove device.
Then re-install the device so go back to Device and Printers> add a device> click Xbox-system OS.
Now you should be able to stream media again. If it stops streaming repeat this process over again.
doesn't work. Tried it a dozen times.
It worked for a while last week. Now I just get the error.
pretty sure the issue is microsoft isn't good with working with microsoft. i mean really. win 7 and xbox one and nothing works.
No they don't. Despite being marketed as a multimedia hub, the One lacks even the basic functionality to makes this a true statement. No true streaming from the console and no USB storage support. I'm really bummed I bought this thing.
