Windows 7: Broken Media Libraries

Broken Media Libraries

Is anyone else having trouble with their media libraries? I put shortcuts in the public videos, music, pictures folders and always have. The libraries all work fine on extenders connected to the pc, but nothing shows up on the htpc itself.
It doesn't let me watch any folders at all.

i'm running b7000 with the mp3 update, and activated. I also have mymovies, and transcode 360 installed on the htpc.

I've now also noticed that the computer isn't visible on the homegroup, and libraries outside of media center seem to be broken as well. Normal network sharing is still working.

Double clicking these icons produce nothing, no change in windows explorer. Upon deleting them, and restoring default libraries, they come back as they were before...

So I was just starting to love libraries in Windows 7 and decided I'd setup WMP on my media server, and now I'm stuck. I can't create new libraries in WMP, WMP won't recognize any folders with video that I add to the "Recorded TV" library, and WMP won't use my Windows 7 libraries. On top of that,...

Libraries broken?
I was looking forward to the libraries feature. But I can't see any way to merge a set of folders into one list. For example, I created a downloads library. I added the default downloads folder in my user space, and a separate downloads folder on another drive. I get all the folders in the...
