Windows 7: (Play to:) Network Media Server (Media Not Available)

(Play to:) Network Media Server (Media Not Available)

Hello all,

First of all I'm new to the forum, but have come for many different issues, and have been unable to find any actual threads about my particular issue. I have been racking my brain for about a week now trying to figure out where I'm going wrong or if there is just no possible way to do this.

I have an E3000 router, and have connected my 2TB WD HDD to the storage port, it used to be connected directly to the computer and thought I would give the router a try so I don't have to have my desktop on at all times. I have been using the play to function to play videos to my Samsung 7000 series, which uses DLNA.

At first, the issue started off that the play to function was just not appearing. To resolve this issue, I did a little digging around and found this post, and by using method 2.

Libraries - Include a Network Folder

Now the play to function is appearing on the videos as normal, however when I attempt to play the videos the play to window hangs up with Media Not Available.

Thanks in advance for any input,
