Let me add that the HR20 also accesses and plays WMA just fine, others using MP3 confirm it plays MP3 fine as well. WMA lossless works, as do the lossy versions of WMA.

I am not trying to enter any debate about one format being better than another, just noting that if you have ripped CDs to WMA or MP3 or have downloaded music in either of these formats, that they both work just fine with WMP11 and your networked HR20.
HR22-100 (Native On) | HDMI to basement Sony KDL46v25 | networked to W2K3x64, Vista, Win7x64, Win2K8, XP mp3 and avi video
HR21-200 (Native On) | HDMI to Office Acer | Networked to whole house
HR20-100 (Native On)
RCA Ultimate TV | to remind me HR2x really is that much better

DirecTV since 2002?

Tversity for the PC will transcode AAC to MP3 in real time for the HR20 to play. This is what I do.
Video/Audio 1: DirecTV HR24-500 (HDMI)-> Sony STR-DA5200ES -> Sony KDL-52XBR9
Video/Audio 2: DirecTV HR20-700 (HDMI) -> Sony KDL-32EX500
Video/Audio 3: DirecTV HR20-700 (HDMI) -> Sony KDL-40EX500
