Windows Media Player Play To Onkyo TX-NR807 Windows 7 Help.


Standard Member
Hi People,

Has anyone used the "play to" feature of Windows 7 with receiver successfully? I just right clicked on a mp3 and saw the play to option with the onkyo receiver listed. I clicked on it and a window came up and it sits there saying, "contacting media server." Nothing has played yet. I can browse my media folders from the receiver, but it would be cool to be able to just send the music to the receiver to play. From what I've read, that is exactly what the "play to" option does, but I cannot get it to work. Do I need to the receiver on a certain input or what?

Can anyone explain how they went about doing this?:)
there is a button on the Onkyo remote that

needs to be pushed to put the receiver in "Net" mode. Apparently you have to hit

that key on the remote before you use Play To
