Directv MediaShare HR44/700 No files found.

Hello all.  Today I notice that there is a Mediashare app on the HR44/700.   I have my receiver connected to my home network.  The receiver can see my computer and my computer can see my receiver. However  when I go to folders or all video options on the receiver it says no files found or no files in this folder.  I am running windows 8.1.   Please help.

Awesome.  Thanks for the update

Glad you were able to figure it out as that is all I knew since I use Mac OS X

The Mediashare player in the DVR will play the following formats.  JPG, MP3 and MPG2.  If you wish to use different formats, you'll need to run a transcoder software on your computer.  Here's the blurb on the one 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 choose the “folder” option when selecting files to play.

No, in fact there is no such thing as a software fix for low resolution video, audio or images, at least so far as I know.  Keep in mind that Mediashare was the very first network feature released to a then brand new HR20 HD DVR.  It was (and is) intended to show home movies and images and does a decent job of playing a MP3 music collection.  It lacks trick play so folks get discouraged when trying to use it to play DVD's from their computer as if the playback gets interrupted, you must start all over from the beginning.
