My recently installed Sony BlueRay disk player has a lot of "smart" features and it found the Windows Media Center on my office PC. I can open that and view various file folders (Music, Videos, Photographs) and it will play AVI, MPEG, and WMV videos, but I can't find/play the .wtv TV recordings I have stored there.
