    Oh absolutely, which kind of goes back to the beginning about the app being required.

    I'm glad you brought this up because I've been wanting to check this app out more completely and see what it really can do.

    I installed it (the link you provided is for WP8) but when I try to connect the Xbox with the IP address I get this error message "We can't connect to your console right now. 0x8000001E" . I can't find that exact error code online. In Console Settings/Connected Devices/Current Setting Xbox SG apps: ON Play To: ON

    Btw...I may have mislead earlier. I don't need a wireless connection with Xbox as it is wired.

    Yes sorry here is the link for a PC. Xbox 360 SmartGlass app for Windows in the Windows Store

    With the app installed you shouldn't be having any problems unless maybe something is blocking the connection like anti virus software etc. Mine connects straight away.

    The SmartGlass app canít find or connect to your console

    Solution 1: Same Microsoft account?

    If SmartGlass canít find your Xbox 360 console, make sure the Microsoft account (formerly Windows Live ID) associated with your Xbox Live gamertag is the same Microsoft account that you use on your PC. If you donít know the Microsoft account that is associated with your Xbox Live account, see Find your Microsoft account or password. You must also be signed into your Microsoft account on the Xbox.

    Solution 2: Enable SmartGlass on your Xbox 360

    For help with enabling SmartGlass on your Xbox 360, see Setup and use SmartGlass on the Xbox 360.
