      Have you had a look at this MS tutorial? It may give you an idea what is wrong.

      Sorry

      On reflection this is a bit outdated so may be of no help.

      Here is a troubleshooter from MS which has links to various sources
      Troubleshoot problems with a Windows Media Center Extender device

      Finally here is one which may be the answer to your problem, I would try it first.
      While attempting to use your Xbox 360 console as a Media Center Extender, you receive the error message: "Configuration Error"

      Sorry for the earlier omission.
