    Today is the first time I have turned my PS3 on in a while and I noticed under the list of PC's my PS3 has media share setup with it now list "DirecTV HMC Lite Server" three times. I am using PC Playback on three HR20's.

    When I click on them I get a error message that says "Media Server Error: A DLNA protocol error (4405) has occurred.".

    Does this mean that at some point we will be able to use PC playback through a PS3 too or is this just a problem?

    My guess is that the PS3 just sees it because it's on the network.

    Probably, but it would be awesome if it actually worked. I am wondering if it is early stages of MRV? I know the PS3 will not be a part of MRV but I am wondering if the HR20's have some software already for MRV and any networked unit like that will see the HR20's.

    Again, this is a WAG but I suspect that the HR20 publishing its presence was not completely intentional.

    I've seen this on both my PS/3's since people started reporting that Windows/XP was seeing them in their network neighborhood.

    That is what I am beginning to wonder and hope. :D
