What video format are those files?
Has this ever worked properly for you?
What model HD DVR/Receiver do you have?
How is it connected to your home network?

The HR22 doesn't have a built-in WLAN/WiFi adapter, so how exactly is it connected to your home network?

I have a comcast arris wireless router. All of my laptops iPads and receivers are all on the network wirelessly. I can watch on demand movies and do pandora and you tube from this receiver.

Put an MP3 audio file in the default music folder in Windows and play it on your HR22. Does it play properly? If yes, then the video file has an odd audio track. Some of us run a 3rd party server software on our computers that allow a variety of formats to be played back in Mediashare. If you're interested, post back and I'll post details of the software that I use.

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 loose the “folder” option when selecting files to play.

Genius! TVersity is working like a charm! Just watched a video...and it had sound!
The video I had I had to convert to mpeg2...if I have a wmv file or any other file, will I still have to convert to mpeg2 before watching through mediashare?

The TVersity program will convert file types on the fly so they will play in Mediashare. Note there is also a "library" function in TVersity where you can specify where the files are stored, such as an auxiliary drive.

Thanks for the info. I've noticed today that videos that are 10minutes or longer will not play past about 2 minutes. Anything that can be done about that? The short videos are playing so far.
