Windows Media Center Library Issues

I'll let the Pictures do the explaining, but this wasn't happening until I decided to add a new folder to my videos library today... For some reason it doesn't appear:

This is what my Library looks like to anything connecting to it:



And here's what it looks like to my Media Server:

You might try looking in the Public Video's folder C:>Users>Public>Public Video's, for the missing folder, this is where they tend to end up when this type of problem occurs.

I believe the Imac is showing all of the folders because by Default Windows adds the Public Video's folder to the Video's folder Library.

So, the problem was fixed by disabling Homegroups & then re-enabling Media Streaming... No idea why that worked, though...
