    I split this into two threads PC software and Receiver Software .. with the small number of folks, either way is probably OK, though.

    question about the known issue, it states dod will not work... is that the shows already downloaded won't play, new won't download or something else b/c i'm browsing dod now with no issues, just not dl'd anything yet

    just tested everything i can browse, queue stuff and dl and play the dl's on the receiver so maybe that note was meant just for the pc side of it all

    I believe it's DoD from the PC.

    I didn't pull last week's CE but I did pull it on my non HMC DVRs. I can ping all of them fine. I can't, however, ping the HMC DVRs. Can anyone else try?

    No ping response with mine either. The ICMP replies were only recently added 2 CEs ago... so whichever code enabled that probably isn't in the build we just got.

    Page 10 in User Guide has this paragraph which might need a little work:

    Can I stream my files over my wireless network? How?

    You can use an Ethernet wireless adapter with your DIRECTV Plus HD DVR but HD content requiring high bandwidth. You may experience streaming interruptions or may not even see the server.

    Page 11 slight change needed:

    Why is Media Share only compatible with capable PCs and not other platforms?

    The support HD streaming video requires machines with sufficient CPU, Graphic processor and RAM. If those minimum requirements are not met, the application will not be able to guarantee Video decoding. We recommend to use PC with HD DVD or Blu Ray capabilities.

    Dripping...
    On my HR20-700 that runs 020D and HR21-200 that runs 0203, when I go into Media Share there's now a "DirecTV HMC Lite ..." listed under My Computers. If I select it I see a HR20 Playlist, HR20 Showcases and HR20 Bookmarks, if I select Playlist a couple or the recordings on the HR20 running 120E show up, but if I try to play any of them I get a "There are no playable files in this folder" error message.


    OK, could this be a sneak peak of what MRV will be looking like:D

    Tversity is still working properly; audio, video, photos are playing as they did before the 0x120f download.

    I have the same display and results as RAD above.
