Just seeing what is the recommended method to connect XBMC with Windows 7 Homegroup? Is there a plugin within XBMC to launch homegroup?

The homegroup file sharing will be only used for seldom sharing of files between the HTPC and my Desktop. The library of files are stored on the NAS.

XBMC cannot connect to Windows 7 Homegroupe. You'll have to use SMB (wiki)/Windows Sharing.

Full disclosure: I work for WeTek. However, this is my personal account, and my words and opinion are my own.
