Just installed and updated my BD390. I am seeing the Public folder of my Vista SP2 PC, and have successfully played MP3 files and viewed JPG files without installing the Nero Media Home Software. Just what does that software do that Windows file sharing does not?
So far when I have tried to play video, either AVI or MPG, I get some sort of a Codec Error. Does the Nero software encode these files to compatible codecs on the fly when playing?
Can TV programs recorded with Media Center be played/streamed to the BD390? If not, how can convert them so they can?
I have watched Netflix video in the family room by hooking my laptop up to the TV, I thought this unit would make the process as easy as watching TV. When I tried to activate the device, Netflix tells me I have to have an unlimited plan! What a disappointment, why can I not just watch my allowed time like I can with a computer? Obviously this is a Netflix issue, but just thought I would mention it. Maybe everyone else who cares already has a unlimited plan?
YouTube seems to work really well, although the videos are just as stupid and boring as they are on the computer! (Just making a joke, I realize I am probably in the minority with that opinion
