    easy, really.

    Read all the networking/WMP11 PDFs and threads. Thank you Earl and Spanky!

    HR20-700 - latest national software release
    Windows XP Pro sp2 up to date
    Zone Alarm Pro firewall - not an issue
    WMP11
    Linksys BEFSR41 4 port router (the cable modem, mine and my wife's PCs)
    cable modem (Cox)
    50 ft of CAT6 (same price as the CAT5 so I went for the fatter wires) $18.95 at Frye's Electronics
    pack of cable clamps - $1.85 at Home depot

    layed out and plugged in the cable. ran network setup and succesful test
    set up sharing on the WMP
    saw the On Demand menu right away - no content, no Music and Pictures
    did an RBR - Music and Pictures shows up and plays!
    after an hour the DoD started populating.

    Thank You DBSTalk!!
