I wanted to pass on some info about Directv2pc. My set-up is below. I've been struggling with DTV2PC for over a month now and finally I think I have found the culprit for DTV2PC from working. I have young kids so I have Network Nanny Software running on every computer. I did not realize that this program affected DTV2PC. I kept getting a DTV2PC "connection error". Once I turned it off on my PC's, DTV2PC worked wonderfully! I could of kicked myself for not thinking of that possibillity sooner. Oh well, maybe it will help others know that certain other things running on your PC's may affect DTV2PC.
