Sometime, I see this "Living Room 1_5146 (HiMediaServer)" in Network locations, sometimes, I don't. Is this virus? Is it trying to spy me? What should I do?
I'm using Windows 8.1 - 64 bit.

Ask yourself these questions:
If all else fails, and you are the routers owner/admin, try logging in to your routers settings (using the IP address of the default gateway using ipconfig), and it may show you a list of connected devices, check if you can identify them all. Also windows may tell you the IP address of the media server if you right-click it.
If you still cannot tell what it is, a last resort would be to change the wifi password. That device and all others, won't show up anymore until that device enters the correct credentials to re-connect.
