Hi,

Will the dvr work with Windows XP Pro non-ViiV, or does it specifically need XP Media Center edition?

If it works with XP Pro non-ViiV can you please direct me where I can find assistance with setting up sharing thru Media Player 11?

Thanks.
Thanks, Jerry

Yes it will work with WMP11 and a few others. I use WMP11. Here is a link to help you set it up.

I did not see if this works with windows XP Pro, can someone please confirm that this works with machines running XP Professional and not XP MCE.

Thanks

I'm running XP home on 2 computers at home. They're not XP pro, but they are networked to my HR20 with no problem. So I would think any XP edition should be able to do it. Others have had problems though so network setup might have something to do with it. It's hit or miss with some.

The HR20 works with XPPro using both/either TVersity and WMP11. I have had both media servers running concurrently. I have played music from one while simultaniously playing photos from the other. I am disapointed that videos of any type are not supported by the HR20.

Will the MODEL #WGA54G work with a HR20-100s and a Windows XP home version non-Viiv PC? Earl's PDF mentions it will only work with g-networks but all sellers of the wga54g say it will also work with b-networks as well?
