Windows 7: WMP remote streaming woes.

WMP remote streaming woes.

I have 3 computers running 7600 ultimate, 2 are running x64 one is running x86. All 3 have remote streaming enabled, all 3 have the same windows live linked credential.

Is there a port I need to open from the router side on my home network to allow remote streaming to function correctly? I consistently get the error ''Windows Media Player encountered a problem while downloading the playlist." when playing from a remote connection. All 3 computers are on the same homegroup also when they're at my place. Additionally all the computers dont show up for eachother in the ''other libraries'' section of WMP, they show up intermittently.

I have this same issue, even on the same network.. did you ever resolve this?
