Windows 7: Windows Media Player DLNA

32 bit Windows Ultimate
Windows Media Player DLNA


Basically our TV has the ability to stream from windows media player. However, for some reason on my computer the TV can never see me! It has done it before but has just randomly stopped and I know I havent changed anything.

All the other computers in the house work and the settings are identical.

I have tried disable and re-installing it via Windows Features and rebuilding the database.

Now, after doing these, if I click Stream > More Streaming Options, the TV and other computers dont even appear now.

Last time this happened I completley reinstalled windows 7 on my computer, but because of the amout of files and movies on my computer, this will take me an extreamly long time.

Any help would be nice :)
