    Problem Connecting

    I have had my  ShowCenter 250HD for a few weeks and have got to to connect and play everything eventually. I am using Swiss Centre rather than the ShowCenter interface.

     Today halfway though a cd it lost the connection.

    I try to reconnect. I get a message saying it cannot connect ot the PC press button A which I do.

     That takes me back to the start screen.

    I can scan for wifi servers and it shows my connection but will not connect. I then get a message saying "waking up PC wait for a while and then login to media server.

    Anybody got any ideas?

    I've never had good luck with Wireless.  Not saying that it shouldn't work, just that I had enough problems with it that I ended up pulling a line to my entertainment stack to do away with the wireless.

    So.. you are getting a wireless connection (you can see an IP address in the Showcenter's connection status), but you can't see your SwissCenter?  Hmmm...if you open a web browser and browse to the SwissCenter server itself, do you get a connection?  (It depends on how you set up your server, but it should be something like "http://your-server-ip-address:8000").  If you can, then the problem is between the Showcenter and your server.  If you can't, maybe your server has gone away.

    I should have posted a response sooner. Sorry.

    The connection just came back without me doing anything. Still don't really undertand why. Just one of those things I guess.

    Like I said:  I've never had good luck with Wireless in this application.  Wireless works fine for many functions, but if you're expecting 100% reliability, no dropouts, no slowdowns, no hiccups, no nothin' -- it's not necessarily going to give you that.
