    I have:
    Hopper 1 with 1 Joey and Sling adapter.
    Hopper 2 with 1 Joey.
    Three Windows 7 computers with Windows Media Player.

    When I go to the Home Media screen I only see 2 computers, pressing Refresh does nothing.

    I checked Network and Sharing center on Win 7 and I see the 3 computers, 2 Hoppers, 2 Joeys and the router.

    One machine may not be running Windows Media Center.

    Install Windows Media Player 11. It includes a DLNA server. It's not goign to help very much because it doesn't do any transcoding and the Hopper is particular about formats.

    I don't see Windows Media Center anywhere on Computer, just Media Center Player.
    I can't find anywhere on the internet to download it on the internet except third party vendors which I don't trust because they install not wanted software.
    Where can I download the 64 Bit version?
    Or can I find it on the original Win 7 Home Edition disc?

    I may have this wrong but I'm wanting to view media located on my computer(videos, pictures etc...) on my LCD via my Hopper.

    Is this possible?

    Calvin386,
    You are really hijacking my post, do me a great favor and post your question in your own thread so I can get my answer.
    Thanks,

    You got your answer...make sure Media Player is installed and make sure you're set to share your media.

    Like I said, that may not help too much. I use PlayOn (http://www.playon.tv) to stream to the Hopper.

    You necroposted on a thread to give bad info? Great. The HIC is not necessary; see the FAQ for how to enable bridging.

    I'm pretty sure I'm right about this. It's what I was told by my fsm

    It's ok, you're wrong. Or your family is wrong, whichever. I and many other Hopper users have bridging enabled.

    That was correct when it first launched due to a bug. A HIC is no longer needed.
