Windows 7: Windows 7 DLNA not showing up on PS3

Windows 7 DLNA not showing up on PS3

Hello everyone,
First off I must say that this is my first forum registration and I seem to have fallen into the right place. I will try my best to describe my computer/network issues...so please bare with me.

My PS3 at one point showed the Windows 7 "DLNA" icon and I was able to stream my music, picture, movies and all that good stuff without a problem. I even have an app on my Android phone called "2player" that would allow me to stream my music from my laptop to my phone (just the way the PS3 would allow me to) but I have come to the terrible discovery that my PS3 nor my android phone are picking up my laptop. I have been to many forums, websites and other means of assistance and it seems that all of my settings are correct, yet I can't seem to find a fix to this issue. I am hoping that someone has good news for me as I have tried just about everything and nothing has worked. Also, I am aware that Windows 7 has an available "play to" option...well my laptop doesn't give me that option. I don't know if this issue is implemented with my sharing options or not but I am open to any suggestions.

Many thanks in advance

First off, welcome to seven forums... and yes you are in the right place!!!

I had a similar issue with my media server 2 months ago, the culprit was a recent antivirus update. It added a sw fiewall that blocked all local access to my media server shares. Try disabling any and all firewalls, or temporarily remove your av to test this theory.

Please keep us informed regarding your progress!

Well I'm back. After 473 days, I must say that my issue hasn't been fixed. I don't know how I went so long without really looking for a solution to my issue. The problem still persists, my PS3 still doesn't show my laptop as a DLNA server and when I try to stream music from my laptop to my phone via an app, my laptop doesn't even show on the list of available servers. However, when my sisters come over, the PS3 is quick to show both of their laptops as DLNA servers. What gives?!?

DLNA - Until yesterday when my new TV arrived, I'd never heard of this. Now I'm trying to get to grips with it so that I can connect my PC via my network to my TV, so that I can send photos and videos on my PC to the TV. I should also (I think) be able to use the TV to select what photos or videos...
