Simple and easy to use. No hassle with anything. Looks good for what I want except for one thing. I have two computers, both running Windows XP and oShare. oShare only shows up on my OPPO BDP-103 Blu-ray player from one of the two. All the necessary configuration for it to work is identical on both machines but oShare remains invisible on one of them. I seldom find anything this simple that works, does what it says it does and I love what it shows me... ...when it's not blocked by something I can't find -- and I know networking, internet security, routers, etc., all from long experience. Some media file sharing details along with the product could go a long way toward troubleshooting.
