    I don't think a DM 800 can play AVI files, last time I tried it couldn't. copy the avi file to your dm800 hard drive and try to play it from the video button on remote.if it won't play then you'll never stream it from pc. you could convert the avi to some other playable file type

        Try converting your .avi file to a .ts file. Transport Stream files are the default video files of Dreambox.
