I installed Directv2PC on another computer I have and it worked.
I put in a spare hard disk and restored it to my configuration one year ago, didn't work. That did have VMware on it however.
Now I am go to just install a clean copy of windows on that disk and see what happens. Will post back.

Computer 1 has problem. Directv2PC runs but can't load playlist.
Computer 2, it works.
Just installed on Computer 3, it works.
So I go back to computer 1 and on a spare drive do a clean install of Windows 7. Directv2Pc runs, loads the playlist, plays programs but screen is green, audio plays.
Go back to computer 3 and it now it has the green screen. Worked one hour ago.
Computer 2 still works.
In all cases the network communications are OK both ways. I tried with only one computer on (other 2 off) in each case, no change. All 3 computers are hard wired to router, all have Intel Core CPUs.
I am beginning to think Directv2PC is just flaky, not worth the effort. Problem could also be in the HR34 software which is still "immature". Called Directv tech support, no help.
