I am currently testing out Media Center and trying to add a shared library folder for Music off of another networked machine. This machine's hostname begins with a ".". So, it looks like "\\.host\shared folder". When I try to connect to this share, Media Center will report "A valid shared folder must be entered to continue". If I try to enter a share name without the "." it will attempt a connection. At the desktop level Windows 7 connects to the shared folder with the "." just fine. Media Center is the only one that will not. I tried mapping drive letters to this path and then trying to monitor local drives, but it still would not see the contents of the folder. Anyone have any insight? Thanks!
