    Hi

    I recently got myself a HTPC, and wanted to know, how do I have media centre "pick up" the movies on a shared drive on the network?
    Google brings me all sorts of different comments, but one question that not quite answered, is: "Would it automatically be able to view the shared media on the network, just by setting up the PC on the home network, same as you would a "normal" XP Pro machine?"

    Many Thanks

    ps: Any tutorials you guys might have, please link em here

    Have you mapped the network drive?
