Hi Ed,

Review the information in the following thread:


If that is not of any help, I have used both and currently am trying TVersity and having better luck. Although when I moved to 0x120 I have encountered more problems with Media Sharing than ever.

Good luck!

Twonky works for me, and WMP11 doesn't. :) The only downside for Twonky is that is costs around $40 to register after the trial period, while WMP11 is free.

Why don't you try both, and see what works best in your system?
