iPad - Windows 7 - Boxee Media Manager: HELP - not finding each other
First off - please do not suggest rebooting for a solution.
Installed the boxee media manager onto my Windows 7 server. Works fine. Installed on ipad. It will not see the windows 7 box. I know that it can see the network because I installed it on a iMac and it worked (but uninstalled as my media server is a Windows 7 server.)
I have been reading but there are no clear - step by step - instructions. I see reference to 'bonjour' which I have no idea what that is. Can someone (BOXEE!) provide clear step by step troubleshooting instructions? For example, if I need to restart a service like Bonjour? then with steps how to.
BOXEE - you need to REALLY improve here (but I love your product - just bought two).
Thanks - Michael

HAHAHAHAHA I'm sorry but that was funny.....anyways bonjour is a piece of software Apple uses for device discovery on local area networks. I wish I could be more helpful, but at least you know what bonjour is used for. My gut tells me that it's not working very well for you and your hopes to discover your windows 7 box. Try restarting that service on your win 7 box

Do you have a DLINK Wireless Router?
I have issues with bonjour over DLINK equipment.
