When your MediaSmart HDTV is connected to
your home network, it appears in the Media
Sharing window. Click the TV icon, and then click
Allow. This enables the program to stream media
to the TV.
n
The first time you attempt this step, the TV
may appear as an unidentified device. This
is normal. Click the device icon, and then
click Allow.
5
To change the default sharing options, click the
Settings button in the window. In the Media
Sharing-Default Settings window, you can specify
how your computer is listed among the media
servers, and you can also select the media types
you want to share and optional parental controls.
Click OK.
6
Click OK to close the Media Sharing window.
7
At the top of the Windows Media Player window,
click Library, and then click Add to Library.
The Add To Library window opens.
8
Select an option under Select the folders to
monitor, or click the Advanced Options
button and select specific folders.
9
Click OK.
Wait while Windows Media Player automatically
adds the media files from the selected folders to
your Library.
This completes the steps to authorize and add
media for Windows Media Player.

Sharing with a network drive

A computer with Windows Media Player 11 may
share digital media with a network drive or remote
share (for example, a computer with Windows Media
Player 11 that is attached to a network configured with
an HP Media Vault or other network attached storage).
When your MediaSmart HDTV is connected to the
same network, it aggregates this content for you to
browse from a single interface on your
MediaSmart TV.
To authorize your MediaSmart HDTV in Windows
Media Player, and to select or add media to the
shared folders, see "Adding media to share on the
computer" on page 96.
Using MediaSmart
Services Gateway
Software
The MediaSmart Services Gateway software (also
called the HP Server), manages the downloading and
storing of movies onto a PC from the Internet, for
viewing on a MediaSmart HDTV. The HP Server must
be running on your PC to purchase and download
movies from your TV, as well as view certain image
and video file types not supported by Windows Media
Player 11 such as .png, .ma4, and .mp4 files.
The software is loaded onto your PC by the
MediaSmart HDTV Installation CD. Look for
the icon on the desktop.
n
Be sure to accept any updates to the
software MediaSmart loads onto your
computer.
