Why does this "service" say it is "started" when it isn't?

-I am running a hardwired connection to my d-link wireless router

-xp2 home

-wmp11 (recognizes "unknown" device(hr20))

-after about 2-6 songs in a Playlist it kicks out(back to sat).
--won't see my main computer until after I restart a "started" mpnss again!

(repeat initial problem)

Any Ideas?? num as rocks over here!!

Which version of HR20 software are you running?
Are both the HR20 and the PC hardwired? (Just checking)
Does the PC still indicate that the services are running or do they need to be restarted each time too?

Cheers,
Tom

Running 0x108 on HR20. PC is running HME SP2. Both Viiv 1.5 and WMP 11 media sharing services running. Works great for about 15 min and then HR20 stops its connection with computer. A red button reset takes care of the problem. HR20 hooked up to a Linksys XBOX game adapter, which is acting as my wireless bridge. That is plugged into a standard 5 port hub along with my HR20, XBOX, and XBOX 360. All of which work. HR20 is set up to use static IP. HR20 peters out with either static IP or auto assigned IP. I think it is just a bug in the HR20 software.

Only the service needs to be restarted.

No viiv 1.5 but same problem... Hey Strejcek try restarting "windows media player network sharing service" found in admin in control panel--admin services-:wmpnss

let me know if it works for you...is only a temp fix (another 15 min) no other big resets!

You're welcome :)

Next thing I'd do is check the PC's event viewer logs to see if there are entries for the failures.

And several users have reported better luck by reloading WMP (or an update to WMP.)

Good luck,
Tom

That got it working again, however, it is not picking up all my music this time. And before the HR20 crapped out this time, I got a message saying my computer logged off. First time I saw that.

the only problem i had is that i tried to load up 26gb of mp3s into wmp. the hr20can not see all that data at once and froze up everytime i would try to access it. i select only a few tracks for the wmp and it works like a charm.

I got the logged off message twice today and the third time I had to try to get these devices back in sync got me really frustrated. RBR seemed to fix me last time.

How many "computers" does your HR20 see. mine sees two but they are really just two different profiles on the same PC.

If anyone has gotten TVersity to work I would love to hear from you. I can not get WMP11 to work on my XPHome Box.

Thanks.

I found that if I let 3 songs play all the way the "connection" will drop. During the last 30 seconds or so of the third song the "transport" will revert back to TV and when the song is over the channels audio starts. Restarting the wmpnss service will make it work again for 3 songs. There was nothing in the event viewer and I am using 0x108.

Has anyone found a fix to the HR20 disconnecting after ~7 minutes? My setup works fine, except that it stops playing music and reverts to the SAT sound every 7 minutes. Any work arounds?
