I have a Belkin Media Server and have it connected to my DirectTV receiver, but can not play any MP4 formatted videos. Is that format not supported? It shows an "x" next to the video.

Correct. only MPEG2 is supported. seeing how MS has always been in BETA, I doubt there will be anymore updates

So is it possible to link to an external storage drive from you DirectTV receiver and play newer formats? MP4?

No. you can use 3rd party software to convert "on the fly"

You might want to try a 3rd party software called TVersity. It takes the place of Windows Media Player as the server. The current version doesn’t work properly so I run version 1_7_4_1 and simply click “okay” if offered the update. In addition I run the CCCP codec pack (not Insurgent) and refuse the TVersity codec version if offered. One nice thing about TVersity is the Library tab where you can tell the program where to look for your files. Another advantage is that the program will trans-code on the fly several file types to ones the Media Share program can play. Note that you choose the “folder” option when selecting files to play.
