    I believe the email you're referring to is in regards to remote booking and doesn't have anything to do with sharing.

    And by "sharing", do you mean viewing pictures and listening to music from your pc on the HR20?

    yea i looked in these places and its not helping me, see i got it networked and connected to network and internet so thats not the problem. i also have a PS3 that i have doing the media share in another room and that works. so i know everythings good there. my problem is where do i find my shared folders on my HR20. i cant find them, i goto network and i can re-run the tests, or re set it up is all i can seem to do

    Go to your main menu, you should have Music & Photos menu item.

    What media player are you using?

    Have you set the media player up to share with the HR20?

    I have been fighting networking my HR20 for over a week now. I only got the photos and music menu up once and it freezes when it is on the network with a media server. I think D* still has a ways to go before they get the media sharing working like it should.
