It may be the software. Have you tried using the PC Share Manager with the same results?

In reply to: yes


Some users here have noted that some larger files tend to not work, particularly when they break the 4GB threshold with streaming. Breaking up those files under 2GB often fixes some issues.

DLNA disconnecting from computer and TV

Hello everyone out there who is having a miserable time trying to get constant connectivity between their Windows PC computers and a Samsung DLNA active TV.

Perhaps I have an answer for you all but it is one you will not hear from Samsung.

First thing to understand is NOT to use the Samsung PC Share manager UNLESS you are using Vista or earlier OS's. It Will NOT work on Windows 7 and will keep disconnecting in anything from 2-10 minutes of streaming any video files to the TV.

On my Vista or XP PSs the Samsung Share Manager is fine. BUT if like me you find it dropping out and disconnecting then you must delete this and use a much more robust Media Server.

I have tried many and found only one that consistently locks on and never disconnects. It is Windows 7 compliant as well. Strange name but go look and get the TWONKYMEDIA server. You do not need the whole suite, just the server, and it is very easy to use.

I have spent weeks trying to find why the DLNA kept disconnecting. Was it the computer? Was it the TV. Why could I get it working on one computer but not the other? I found that it is all about the Media server you use. There are others out there that did not work, but try a 30day trial on TWONKY (what a name) and if it works for you as it does for me...happy days.

If you look at the Twonky site they make an important comment that whatever media server you choose to point computer to DLNA TV make sure it is a DMR and not DMP server device..

Hope this helps everyone. Nothing worse than sitting down to watch a video to have the Samsung DLNA disconnect

Maybe a fix

I had similar issues with the Samsung BD-C6500 blu ray player. PC Share manager would work fine from my old XP laptop but as soon as I tried to stream from my new Vista Ultimate 64 bit desktop, I couldn't get 2 minutes into the movie before a message popped up that PC Share Manager Disconnected. I was pulling my hair out. I think I may have solved the problem. So far so good. I'm about 20 minutes into a movie and no problem.

Scenario: My Vista desktop had 2 NIC's. 1 a realtek onboard which I had disabled because I had been using a Killer NIC for quite some time for gaming. I just re-enabled my Realtek onboard and disconnected my Killer NIC and all seems fine now. The Killer NIC has it's own brain and firewall and stuff, so I'm pretty sure that was the problem.

Movie is still going.

If anyone has a Killer NIC or similar card, I would try changing to something barebone or play around with the software for the NIC card. I was thinking it was the BLU RAY player or something to do with Vista, since it worked good on my XP laptop. But, that doesn't seem to be the case. Damn Killer NIC.

Movie still going. 30 minutes in now.

Like I said, I couldn't get 2 minutes in before disconnect so I am fairly confident that this will be my fix and hopefully it helps others too.

Good luck all!

Hey there! I had same issue and fixed it!

I know I know this question is very very old but I just ran into this same issue today for the very first time.

I found out my DNLA wifi router was competing for the same IP address as my verizon router.

Both were fighting for the IP of

I made the DHCP IP starting address for my DNLA to be

I no longer get any disconnects and no problems at all since the change.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
