i just wanted to add that i would like to use XBMC as the media source to play from.
Hi. I have just bought a Samsung Blu-Ray BD-D5300 and a Samsung LA32D450G1M LCD TV. I like them very much, only the problem is that i cant get the Allshare feature to work. More to the point is i have no idea how to get it to work or use it. I use Linux Ubuntu 10.04lts as an O/S.
I have tried to use many packages to link the TV with the PC but none have worked. Mediatomb, XMBC and MythTV dont give enough instructions on how to set them up to use them.
What i want to do is watch the movies that are on my HDD, via the ethernet cable to my TV. (the ethernet cable is puged in to the Blu-Ray player and not the TV. the TV does not have an ethernet port. a HDMI cable is used to link the Blu-Ray and TV).
I have tried every thing that i cant thing of to get Allshare working but i cant so i am here asking for some much needed help. I have just reinstalled, fresh, my Ubuntu O/S.
There are many forums on Allshare on Linux but none that i have come across that explains what i want to do.
I just want to watch my movies via the ethernet cable.
Can any one please help me resolve this issue.
Many thanks in advance.
