Currently, unless you have a ViiV certified PC, the only type of video WMP11 is going to get the HR20 to play is some mpeg2 formats ... and I highly doubt your going to find many streams that use that format.

If that's your goal, look into a different software like TVersity.
Lots of posts/threads about that software in this forum.

Can't find anyone that got streaming video to work with TVersityor ViiV anywhere I have looked ... AM I missing something or is it a not quite yet feature?

Tons of people in this forum use TVersity video streaming with HR20/HR21.

Look in both this HR20 Info forum and the regular HR20 discussion forum.
