Ok, I have done all kinds of trial and errors and have used Tversity, Playon ect with no avail. I have a dedicated pc setup running windows xp. I am trying to stream backed up videos from my pc which are usually in mpeg format. Tversity never really worked, Playon worked, but it constantly has to pause to transcode the video, making it unwatchable. I am looking for some sort of cheap way to allow me to do this, and have come across a Linksys router: Linksys EA4500. Which has a built in media server. If I attach a USB harddrive to this, will my HR24 see it on my network under Media Share and allow me to play videos flawlessly? Any ideas? Thanks!
