    Has anyone figured out if there is a way to use Firefly with the Mediashare function on the DirecTV HR20 DVR?

    I’ve only seen information on how to share using a Viiv software tool, or using Windows Mediaplayer 11. I’ve got everything in iTunes for my iPod and Rokus… but would love to be able to use this function in the HR20 if there is anyway to pull it off.

    (I know the instructions when using MP11 include the fact that you have to enable sharing specifically to the HR20, which somehow enables those features on the unit. I haven’t found such a feature within Firefly, which may be the issue.)

    Thanks for any ideas!

    I think you are looking for a upnp server, like twonky or ushare. Firefly doesn’t (yet) do UPnP, which I think is what you need.
