Hi,

    My Windows media player used to connect to my Onkyo receiver.  Now it does not.  The Onkyo sees the WMP, but the WMP does not see Onkyo.  Any ideas on how to get this going?  I am using Windows 7.  I have turned off the firewall just to test.  All of my networking seems to be fine.

Is the Onkyo connected via Ethernet, Wireless, USB or what?

The connection is wired to an ethernet switch.

I did go into streaming and ensure that the Onkyo is not blocked.

The "error" message is "No media devices found".  I see it within WMP, which makes this puzzling.

On the Onkyo I can see all my users.  The Onkyo is designed to work with Windows 7 out of the box.  Everything seems fine, but WMP just isn't see it.

Ded9,

    I tried that and it did not help.  Any other suggestions?

Hey...  So that did not work.  I was able to get it working however.  I unplugged the power and did some other stuff.  I'm not sure what it was.  I will give you the points as though you solved the issue.  Thanks for your efforts.
