Now when it boots it displays the welcome screen with an icon for my account, requiring me to hit Enter before I get to the desktop (there is no pw assigned to the account). I'd rather my PC just boot to the desktop.
I think you answered my second question (thanks!) so I will initialize the player as you've mentioned to get the accounts (YT, Pandora, etc) on my LG BD670 saved. I haven't set up the premium content yet.
Windows 7? Good. If you want to completely bypass Nero, and not require any other files to be installed, I recommend using the Homegroup method. When your LG is turned on and connected to the internet, go into Homegroup (on your PC), click View Homegroup Settings, then click "Choose media streaming options..." Click on ALL NETWORKS and you should see an "Unknown device" that is BLOCKED. Switch it to ALLOWED and you should be able to now stream everything using the WMP12 server built in to Windows 7.
Of course, you could try streaming the other way (using the log on), but this is a fairly simple method that requires no passwords or additional software to use.
As for your issue with the PC (where Windows is basically making you "log in"):
There are a few ways to fix this but I do this: Go into the Control Panel/Administrative Tools/Computer Management. Expand "Local Users and Groups", highlight "Users" and you should see your account in the right pane. Right click on your account and set a password.
Follow these steps:
1. Click Start, click Run, and type "control userpasswords2" without quotes.
2. Highlight your account and un-check the "Users must enter a username and password to use this computer".
3. Click Apply.
4. Enter the password, then click OK.
5. Click OK again and you're all done.
Let me know how all of this goes for you.
