Windows 7: Windows media ceter / DNLA

29 Mar 2010   #1

Windows media ceter / DNLA

I have bought a new television Samsung 40UE7070 and have successful connected my wireless system so I am able to see you tube and more.
But I do not see how to see my picture and video from the computer with Win7.
Samsung delivered a PC share manager but this do not support Win7, and Samsung recommend to use Windows media center, but I cannot find any instruction for doing this,
If anyone can support me it will be great

Thanks KAP

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

I can confirm that PC Share Manager does work on 7 x64.
If you are having issues running it on 7, you can choose to launch it in vista compatibility mode (right click to edit the shortcut and choose the compatibility tab)
Also, once you install and run the software, you have to go into the device policy in the app and specifically allow the IP of your tv (easier to set a static IP on the tv so you dont have to keep doing this)

havent used windows media centre - but i have used (and would recommend) TVersity and PS3 Media Server

Dear Packet
Thank yo for your response , could you be more detailed in your surgestion, please?

I have tryed to installe the PC share manager as administrator , but still the box come out saying that the program is stop running, due to a program problem.

Maybe i do it wrong, this vista compability mode, when I right clic on the exe. file on the CD there is only the option of running it as administrater?

The other isue "static IP on the TV" what s that and how to do it

I am really in trobel so i hope for your help

You should be able to install the software without an issue.
Try installing it again with 'run as administrator' off a local drive, not a network share.

And once it's installed, choose to run in compatibility mode.

When you right click the EXE -> click properties -> you'll see the compatibility tab and can choose Vista, etc.

For the static IP part on the TV - hit the menu button,
setup menu ->
network setup ->
internet protocol setup ->
manual setup ->
specify your ip address, subnet, gateway, dns server etc
