im not 100% sure from your post what exactly your trying to do. Are you saying that you are trying to setup a UPNP server? or that you current office PC is setup as a UPNP server?

Either way if you dont' want to use UPNP you can simply do the following

1) Share the folder on your office PC which has the movies.
2) Map a network drive on your SageTV server to the share you just created on the office PC
3) in SageTV choose that drive as a mediacenter import directory.

there are variations of the above steps which include using UNC naming for the shared drive, as well as a few other variations.

The above 3 steps are a quick and easy way to get up an running.

One thing to keep in mind is that depending on which OS's your running on both your Server and your Office PC you may need to setup permissions, user accounts, etc.

Try the above steps and let me know how it goes. If you are having user access issues we can address those as they happen.

Hope that helps
