Sheesh. I'm not going to wait 7 minutes every time my MediaShare crashes. It hasn't yet. Maybe YOU need the TVShare application. LOL www.tv mediashare .com/ . ($14.95 cheap)

Just curious, exactly what are you 'unplugging and plugging back in" ?

Well, that may be all well and good, but I had EVERYTHING set the way you suggest on Windows Media Player and EVERY homegroup settings option you mentioned and it never worked. Without the TVShare program running I never would see the Music&Photos option on the Extras menu. That's all there is to it. No need to 'suggest' anything else. I got it working by installing this ...

They sent me the CCK-W free because they thought it would fix the MediaShare problem (it did not). But we did get the Wireless to connect up and give Internet access so I'm leaving that in place. It also simplified the wire setup behind the box; there was a weird 3-way splitter of the Coax from the dish (one goes to the 2nd Whole-Home TV) and now it only needs a 2-way spl...

Well, it turns out if you want to do something right, DO IT YOURSELF! After another 75 minutes phone call (the NINTH person I talked to) with the Express Resolution Support desk (where you call them with your case number), we managed to get the Wireless CCK-W kit installed and running. That part was actually easy. Of course, this had no impact on whether "Music & Photos" ...

I've now been on the phone with a total of SEVEN different support people, a service call to the house, and even received an e-mail response from one of the Issue Resolution Specialists. Nobody has come up with anything useful until (MAYBE) the last phone guy. The e-mail guy just had me select various network settings on my Windows7 PC that were already set that way to be...

One last piece: One DirecTV person said that the color of the lights on the Ethernet on the back of the Genie were bad. I have an orange light and a irregularly slowly flashing yellow light. She said there should be a steady green if MediaShare was working. Not sure if that's significant, but there you go.

I don't have "Music and Pictures' on my Extras menu at all. (only 7 items in Extras:.Messages, Active, TVApps, CallerID, YouTube, Pandora, Showroom). I know this worked at one point, but now, nothing. The Windows 7 PC is on, all the cables are connected correctly, and the Genie can see and use the internet just fine. (Genie Ethernet cable to my router, PC uses wireless to...
