The switch should be beefy enough (not only GIG but have a large buffer) to handle everything running at the same time.
Switch has direct connection to Router/Cable Modem/Internet.
I see you "Swap out a different router", so obviously firmware update is a stretch, unless you swapped with the same make/model. This is how I do the cabling for an Extender Network.
All the extenders, network tuners, and HTPC are cabled to the same switch.
I don't think it's the network because I have swapped out routers, and I don't think it's the Xbox because it happens on both of the ones I have.
Based on what I have found, I concluded it is probably a system process that is crashing, given that it stops working after a couple hours and is fixed by a reboot.
-Ensure UPn P is enabled on router.-Swap out a different router.-Ensure Media Center Extenders was under Allowed Applications in Windows Firewall.-Completely disable Windows Firewall-Ensure "Network Discovery" is turned on in Networking settings-Ensure Xboxes were allowed Media Streaming under Network Settings.-Windows system restore to a couple months ago.
My workaround so far is to have the HTPC automatically restart every morning at am so that when I get up in the morning, the extender in my room will function, but when I get home from work, the issue happens again, and I have to reset the computer.
Bring the full application to the Xbox One Holds more potential The Xbox one can extend Windows Media Center to other devices instead of just being the extender like the Xbox 360. Then someone for instance can be on the Xbox 360 streaming live TV off my Xbox one while I'm playing the game on my Xbox one.
Just like the Smart Glass but on a bigger TV and maybe even stream my movies, music, and pictures off my external Hard drive from my Xbox one.
But what if your Home Theater PC, running Windows Media Center, was hooked up to your television?
