I have the same problem.
Windows 7, Xbox360, Norton 360 v3
I can set up and use the Xbox360 as a media center extender when the firewall is turned off. As soon as I turn the firewall back on it cuts off the PC's connection with the Xbox360. I've setup the firewall with the program rules that were in this tech support doc:
It didn't help at all. Symantec, we are still waiting for a resolution to this.

I found this on the Microsoft support page and also set up the programs listed to be allowed access always.
Still not working after following these instructions. Hopefully Symantec can use this info so they know which ports need to be opened for the Media Center Extender to work through the firewall.

Yet another support article from Microsoft for configuring non-Microsoft firewalls to allow Media Center Extenders:

When you open up the Norton 360 panel, with the four big circles, you will see:
"my network" in small print in the lower left corner. Click on it.
Close the help/instruction box if it opens. You should see a listing of network devices. I believe your Xbox needs to be on at this point.
Find your device and select it.
To the right of "Trust Level" is an "edit button". Click on it.
Change the setting to "full trust", and if you are like me, you will be golden
