    I think I discovered something . . . . explain if I am wrong . . .

    I had moved my WMC DVR captures from my HTPC to my Win 2012 R2 home server. I can play these files with Cyberlink PowerDVD, but MP won't see and cannot find them. Apparently -- again correct me -- is it true that a simple installation of MP without creating a server accessible by multiple clients -- that such a simple installation requires the files to be local to the HTPC?
    If the files are accessible on your network, which I guess they must be if PowerDVD can play them then you should be able to find them in MP2.
    See here for further info.
    MP2 uses the concept of distributed media, but centralized information. This means that your media items can be anywhere - on your MP2 Server, on your MP2 Client, on any other computer in your network, on a NAS or maybe even in the Internet
