    I currently have the WMC plugin for Netflix installed on my computer. Netflix streaming video works great through MEDIA CENTER to the computer monitor.

    I also have a Lynskies Media Center Extender, which allows me to watch recorded TV on my big screen TV through my home network. (The desktop PC is the DVR)

    Why is it that the Netflix icon is nowhere to be found on the extender menu, (on the TV screen), but it exists on the WMC menu on the computer monitor?

    I am currently running WIN 7.

    Thank you for any help you may be able to provide.

    If I'm not mistaken, the plugin only works on PC. However, if you use HDMI, you can access it on your TV

    You are right. It only works on the PC.

    I was able to solve my issue with this device. (No one wants to watch a movie on their computer)

    I hope this solution helps other people. Thanks for the reply.
