Erik, just thought you deserved a BIG THANK YOU for the great work you did here in the discussions.
I was easily able to get the expliot to work and XBMC as my dashboard. I can stream music from Shoutcast, stream my weather and receive RSS feeds when I have the DHCP setting selected. However I have not been able to stream music from itunes or my pc. I have set up the XBMC.xml as follows for itunes:
<name>iTunes Network Share (DAAP)</name>
<!-- only use an IP address here !-->
<path>daap://68.59.97.252</path>
and I get failure to connect error. I am not sure what my settings should be, but when I have DHCP selected I can't ftp my xbox but I can get the weather, rss and shoutcast to work, when I have static selected I can ftp but no shoutcast or rss. I am mainly looking to use the streaming audio feature, so I would appreciate any help anyone can give me.
By the way I have iTunes Edit > Preferences > Sharing set to:
Look For Shared Music - checked
Share My Music - checked
Share entire library - checked
oh and I have my xbox connected by ethernet cable to a DLink wireless rounter in the LAN#1, my cable modem connected by ethernet to the wireless router WAN and my pc is using a DLink USB wireless adapter to access the internet...if that helps.

Ok I have figured out how to ftp my xbox while I have the DHCP setting selected. But still no luck on streaming from my pc. I tried setting up the SMB Network share put it always asks for a u/p and I did not see how to create those when I was giving my pc folders shared access. If this helps I was able to get ftp access using DHCP with 192.168.0.101. I attempted to make bookmarks for iTunes and SMB by trying out the following different combinations:
<name>iTunes Network Share (DAAP)</name>
<!-- only use an IP address here !-->
<path>daap://68.59.97.252/</path>
-------------------------------------------
<name>iTunes Network Share (DAAP)</name>
<!-- only use an IP address here !-->
<path>daap://192.168.0.1/</path>
-------------------------------------------
<name>iTunes Network Share (DAAP)</name>
<!-- only use an IP address here !-->
<path>daap://192.168.0.101/</path>
-------------------------------------------
<name>iTunes Network Share (DAAP)</name>
<!-- only use an IP address here !-->
<path>daap://192.168.0.103/</path>
-------------------------------------------
<name>iTunes Network Share (DAAP)</name>
<!-- only use an IP address here !-->
<path>daap://192.168.0.106/</path>
-------------------------------------------
Really appreciate any help here.

try changing your gateway and DNS to (it looks like you have malformed gateway)
192.168.1.1

What operating system are you running? To access your shared files, you shouldn't be looking at the iTunes sharing but rather trying to connect through the SMB file share. If you have Windows XP Pro then all you have to do is right click the folders you want to stream to your Xbox and enable file sharing on them.
There are ways to stream from a Mac or from Windows XP Home as well.

I posted this discussion and I was able to figure it out. I was running XP Home and I had ZoneAlarm firewall active. I had to work around XP Home and turn off ZoneAlarm...now it's all good!
