I hope this is the correct forum (superuser) to ask these type of questions.
I'm stumped with a DVD Player/PC Issue.
Here's the problem. I bought an LG Blu Ray DVD Player and want to connect to my computer to stream videos/music/pictures. The BLU Ray player came with Nero Media Home 4 Essentials. I installed the software and shared some folders.
I plugged my Blu Ray Player into my router and it picked up an IP. It can connect to the internet, download updates and even watch Youtube movies.
But, for some reason, the Player cannot see my pc. I've tried everything. I've even tried other software like XBMC, TVersity, Windows Media Centre, but the Blu ray player is not picking up the PC at all.
Is this a issue on the router? Note my Blu Ray Player and PC both use Dynamic IPs.
Do both need Static ips?
Any help would be appreciated.
I'm running Windows 7 64 bit yes. I'm PC literate, so have checked the basics. On my router, I can see that the Router has given the DVD Player a IP Address. I can ping this IP. Herewith the config of the router
Router IP is 10.0.0.3 BLU Ray Player IP is 10.0.0.4 My PC Ip is 10.0.0.5
I've followed the tutorials, but on my pc, when I go to Media Streaming Options, it doesn't show the BLU Ray Player as a media device.
