hey guys


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?

I also had lots of problems getting my NR708 to stream Audio. Tried multiple things. Then loaded the Nov Firmware update. I believe that I can now see my media via Media Player and Win7 file sharing.


Please confirm that you loaded the Nov FW update. I'll see if I can help u.
