windows 7
media streaming

I recently bought an that is wi-fi media streamer.
The problem is that in windows xp I share the file I want and they appear on my TV via the wifi.
But in windows 7 they are not, even that I shared the files in windows 7.
In the media player on my PC the function turn on media stream is off.
The check box - start media stream is grey (see the attach file).
What can i do?

Hello Eyal, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might want to translate that to English using Google Translate so we can understand what it is saying. I'm afraid most of us are not able to read this language.

Thank you,

Windows 7 ultimate x64

I am having what appears to be the exact same problem. When you click on "Turn on Media streaming" from inside the libraries tab after clicking "Stream". It does not allow me to click on ok to turn on the media streaming. I used to find it very easy to set up media streaming previously in XP and Vista, but this is proving difficult. the following screen shot is what I get. Also it appears I am not able to select any "show devices on." Which I imagine is the problem, but with no proper guidance from within windows 7 I am at a loss what to do. help would be greatly appreciated.
