Hi,

I have connected my Philips LED TV 6000 series directly to my PC with an Ethernet cable. I configured both of them to have static IPs. On the PC, I enabled Network Discovery and Media Streaming so the TV can see my media files with DLNA.
What happens is that the TV detects properly the computer (i can navigate my media folders with the TV), but each time I try to play a file (whether MP3 or JPG), the TV just blocks and doesn't play anything.
How to fix that ?

NB: I also tried with a program called TVersity and also with an other PC and I experience exactly the same problem.

Hi Rystadenergy,

Could you please confirm me the model number of your television?

I would recommend the following:

-Please make sure the firmware is updated to the latest version
-Try to use Twonky or Windows Media Server as DLNA server
-Disable temporarily the firewall

Regards,
Marco
