Replying to my own message. Maybe it'll help the next guy.
My problem turned out to be my firewall...Eset Smart Security V4. I found I had to create a rule allowing Media Manager to communite with my PC and presto....I was in.
I think it'll be pretty neat having a slide show on the big screen TV in the den when the family is all here for Xmas.

I am running Windows 7 on my PC. When I setup Media Manager I am able to play music, see photos/slideshow... can't play video. I have seen that this is a common problem in this forum.
EVen though my network settings are set to discover devices... I don't see the Motorola DVR on the network devices list. Is this a problem or no issue?
The folders (video, pictures,music) all show up ok on my FIOS medica manager menu... but I get the message Media Manager is not able to play this video at this time... please try again later. This happens for all file formats... including the sample video provided by Media Manager.
This is really disappointing.. I hope Verison can solve this problem soon...

Good morning! I understand you're having problems with Media Manager- very sorry to hear that! Unfortunately, at this time Media Manager is not supported on Windows 7.
As per the Media Manager page (http://verizon.com/mediamanager), the following are the Windows Installation Requirements:
Full compatibility for Windows 7 is being worked on, but until an official release is offered there will not be any support for it. I'm very sorry about the temporary inconvenience!!!

I just had Verion Fios installed and I have been trying to install the media manager into my system, but I keep running into a problem.
I am getting a "windows installer" box stating "The installation package could not be opened. Verify the package exist and that you can access it, or contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows Installer package"
I am running Vista 64 bit. I also tried downloading the test trial installer and I get the same error message.
The file is about 623KB only. Is that correct?
I have loaded and removed 2x the last 2 days. I am not great w/ vista 64 but, I had to add a new user account as administrator, loaded fine, but when I went back to the user account we normally use, kept getting spinning world. so I brought up app, played with it on tv and have now removed, again.
