    I have 3 computers on my home network:
    1) MCE 2005, SP3, 32 bit XP, 802.11n
    2) Vista Home Premium, SP1, 32 bit, 802.11g
    3) Vista Home Premium, SP1, 64 bit, 802.11n
    4) Linksys 802.11n router

    Computer 1 is my main media center on which I record and "serve" tv to the

    Computer 2 id's and plays everything just fine (in Media Center and Windows
    Media Player 11).
    Checking out the network map shows the "server" as both a "computer" and
    as a "media player."

    Computer 3 id's and plays photos and music from Computer 1 (the "server"),
    but does not see recorded tv in either Media Center or WMP11.
    It will play recorded tv from its c drive just fine. It will also play
    recorded tv from Computer 1 using webguide.
    Checking out the network map shows the "server" only as a "media
    When I try to add folders to watch to the library in either Media Center
    or WMP this computer does not see the shared folders on my "server."

    I'm sure I've overlooked something simple, but what the heck am I doing

    Thanks for the response. Sorry if I'm in the wrong place. Thought there
    might be something different about x64 VMC. I checked System Properties and
    it lists the correct workgroup. I see no domain option. Is there somewhere
    else I can look?

    Home Premium can't do domain anyways, so that's probably not the issue.

    It's likely a (network) permissions issue...
