  1. I just installed the Linksys Media Center Extender
    DMA2100..My media center is Windows 7 OS.

    My question. Is their a reason why Netflix and internet TV are not part of the menu displayed from the extender to my second TV ? I thought everything that"s on the main computer would be displayed. Is their a setting I over looked?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I'm not exactly sure what you're talking about.

    However, if its what I think it is, there is a "main screen" and a "secondary screen". Your second TV is probably just an extension, so it wouldn't show unless you drag your menus from first screen to second.

    I sorry I didn't explain this better.This is a Windows media center extender made by Linksys.
    When I open windows media center on the extender it comes up with the normal display except it does not give the Netflix and internet TV choices, which I have on the main computer display.From what I can tell it has everything else.I wasn't sure if it is a copywrite issue that prevents this.I thought the Xbox used as an extender gave you all the same as the main computer.That's why I wondered if I could change a setting to give me everything.
