hey, thought i would reply to this thread as the one i created hasn't had any replies yet
i am the proud new owner of an onkyo tx-nr708
not all is peachy though
i've been trying for the past 2 days but i can't get my receiver to see my main windows 7 desktop pc as a media server using the 'net/usb' function
it can however, see my laptop and play mp3s from that
i've been using windows media player to share my main pc's content to my xbox360 and laptop for ages without any problems.. but the receiver just won't play ball
the pc can see the receiver on the network, can ping it, have added it as 'allowed' under WMP streaming options, have installed it as a digital media device, can use the 'play to' function to push mp3s to it, but it still won't show up as a 'media server' so i can browse my mp3s and play them on the receiver
running latest firmware, tried static and dhcp ip's, triple checked all firewalls, etc..
anyone else had this problem or have any ideas?
