Can ping TV from laptop - but sharing does not work
I recently bought a Philips 37PFL7605H.
I'm quite pleased with it.
However, there is one thing that drives me mad : I can't connect to my laptop to view photos/movies.
I would really like to do so since the ways to do so directly on the TV are a bit disappointing (via USB it does not play the avi movies from my camera, and the SD card is only for movie download ..)
I used media player 11, or tversity, but the TV does never show up in the 'share media with..' window ;-(
I tried many things :
- turning off firewall
- replace wireless laptop connection with cable to modem/switch to avoid mix of cabled TV and wireless laptop
- turning modem upnp setting active
- checked services are running
I can ping the dynamic TV IP fine from the laptop !!
So the laptop sees the TV, but I would wish the TV sees the laptop ;-)
I can also get on the internet fine with the TV.
Anyone hint would be greatly appreciated.
thanks in advance
