Windows 7: PC is listed multiple times in "Media Streaming Options"

21 Jul 2010   #1

Windows 7 Pro 64-Bit
PC is listed multiple times in "Media Streaming Options"

Hi all,

I'm having a re-occurring issue with my Windows 7 Media Player. Every now and then it stops adding new files that I have placed in the monitored folders.

Whilst trying to get to the bottom of this, I noticed that in the "Media Streaming Options" window, there are a number of duplicate entries for the actual PC that the Media Player is installed on. I am able to remove each of these, and once I have removed all of the duplicates, Media Player works properly again and it is once again able to add files from the monitored folders and stream them to my Xbox 360 etc.

However, the duplicate entries re-appear quite often and its becoming a pain to have to keep on removing them.

Has anyone else had this issue, and how did you manage to fix it?

Thanks in advance!
