Windows 7: Firewall blocks streaming of video content to TV using DLNA

Windows 7 Home Ultimate 32bit
Firewall blocks streaming of video content to TV using DLNA

I have a Samsung TV and a PC using Windows 7 Ultimate. Both are connected through a home router.

When I enable the built in Windows 7 firewall, I am no longer able to stream content over DLNA from the PC to the TV. If I disable the firewall, everything works. I am using the built in Microsoft firewall.

I would like to enable the firewall and have DLNA streaming but don't know how to configure it. Could someone please assist?

Thank you

Reading your other threads and this one I think we need one of these. This will show us what system you are using.
Your system specs indicate Windows 7 Home Ultimate.
