    Hi, I connected a computer to my living room HR-21 HD DVR and I am having trouble accessing the pictures on my computer. Everything else works fine. I am able to download VOD and search You Tube Clips.

    I want to know how I can change the computer I am linked too? Do I have to reset the receiver to the default setting?

    Thanks,

    I am using an ethernet connection through a wireless bridge. I have a Linksys 3000 router.

    Are they on the same home network? If so, then download a server app like Tversity or Twonky on to the PC and configure it to share the folders/files.

    Windows media player may need to have the DVR unblocked. While it isn't the best server, it works for some media sharing.
