DirecTV Media Share Blocked

I have confirmed that McAfee Firewall is blocking DirecTV's Media Sharing application (running on my DirecTV HD DVR) from being able to access shared media on my networked laptop (running Vista Home Premium).

Has anyone had experience with the DirecTV Media Share application? Does anyone know how McAfee Firewall must be configured in order to let DTV Media Share thru? What ports need to be opened?

Thanks in advance.

Accessing DirectTV Shared Media

A few quick questions.

What is the IP of the Direct TV DVR
What is the IP of the system
Are the two systems on the same network
If not you will need to add either the IP of the DVR or trust the entire network that is resides in.

If both systems are on the same network and you trust the local network you should be able to access the media.

If the DVR requires UPnP you may run into an issue.
