The Orb media player is an UPnP streaming product like twonky but for Windows. Has anyone tried it with the HR20?

I have it installed on my computer, and it shows up in the computer list on the HR20. But, I haven't been able to play anything with it.

I use it with my Playstation 3.

I've tried to use Orb several different times. I cant get to work on video. My latest config is Vista Ultimate Media Center with Hauppauge card. Notta. Got a slingbox pro with HR20 and that works unbelievably well using component.
