55PFL5706/F7: can't play video files from PC
Just bought a new Philips 55PFL5706/F7 TV, connected to my wi-fi network (no problems) and updated software first thing.
Downloaded Wi-Fi MediaConnect software and installed on PC, this worked fine to project PC screen to TV via wi-fi.
Problems started when I tried to access and play files on PC from the TV thru DLNA server. First tried WMP, TV could see folders and files but would not play them. Then tried TVersity DLNA server, again the TV can see the files and folders on PC, and will play audio and jpeg files, but when trying to play a video file it will indicate it is starting to play but then stop and display "Network Error ". Cannot find what this error means or what generates it. There is virtually no documentation with this TV for anything but the very basics of operation, and nothing online that I can find.
My PC is an HP Pavilion p6754y (AMD quad-core with 4gb memory) running Win7-64 bit. My router is a D-Link DIR-655 (n).
