So I have Windows 7 using WMP and Norton 360. I thought it may be important to mention the above.

When I go to either of my DVRs, select menu, select extras, select "Music & Photos", select photos; I can see my computer and the folders that I have shared using WMP. However when I try to select a folder, I will see one thumbnail of a picture on the PC (sometimes two) and then the DVR locks up. I have tried this on my HR20/100 with 059e software as well as the HR21/700 with the same software with the same results.

This use to work for me BEFORE the 059e software upgrade and my Norton 360 upgrade. I am not sure which has caused this problem since both were updated about the same time and I had not tried to view pictures before this time.

Things I have tried:
1) Tried both DVRs. Both lockup and both have to be rebooted with red button
2) Disabling the Smart Firewall in Norton. No difference.
3) Adding a folder to WMP. Folder shows up as a selection on DVR but still locks up.

Any and all suggestions are welcome. I would love to be able to view my photos on the TV again since this is one of my hobbies.

Most decent BluRay players do media sharing. One of those set up with a streaming 3rd party software like Twonky (free) is awesome.
