Oh yes, Windows 8.1 and Windows 7 can be in the same homegroup. I have one setup with my Windows 8.1 and a Windows 7 on a virtual machine.
As a test, have all computers leave the homegroup to be able to start over fresh.
Afterwards, create a homegroup in Windows 8.1, and join the homegroup in Windows 7. Double check the details in the tutorials below to help make sure everything is set properly for the homegroup to see if that may help.
Homegroup - Create in Windows 8
Homegroup - Add Computer or Join
Hope this helps for now,
