    I have four PC on my network, two XP (XP-1, XP-2) and Two Vista (Vista-1, Vista-2). All are up-to-date. All running Media Player 11.

    I am trying to share (serve) media mainly from XP-2.

    When I open the Library | Media Sharing dialog in Media Player on either of the Vista PCs it lists all three other PC in "Share my media to:" and sharing works fine.

    When I open the dialog on either XP PC; I only see the Vista PCs and not the XP PCs. Since I am mainly trying to see the media on XP-1 served by XP-2 this is very frustrating.

    On the Vista PCs you can show the Entire Network and it lists the Media Servers on both XP PCs.


    I have tried all the obvious things like turning off firewalls etc.
