DLNA etc

by LegoMyGeggo / December 24, 2008 6:13 AM PST

I just got the 52" 850 and was trying to connect my PC etc to it wirelessly. I'm trying to use an AP Client to connect to my wireless router since the router is in another room far removed from the TV. I've done the network check etc and everything is A-OK. I can even see the MAC addy of the TV on my network etc. However, when I use the PC Share Manager I can't seem to find the TV when I do the "Set Device Policy" Any ideas? Also, if AP Clients don't work, do generic USB Network cards work or am I stuck with waiting for the backordered infolink card? Thanks

The wireless capabilities for DNLA doesn't exist.

The wireless functionality is limited ONLY to the InfoLink (news, weather, stocks) feature. DNLA must be hardwired.

Sorry, I'm kind of confused by the DLNa must be hardwired, I thought I could use a PC as a DLNa server and have the TV access it that way. Could you please elaborate? I'm playing around with Twonky and the PC Share program and I can see the servers from my TV but cannot really access the files yet. Will keep you updated.

The InfoLink features (USA Today, news/weather/stocks) can be accessed wirelessly using the InfoLink stick. DLNA content must be hardwired.

I was able to use an Airlink wirless AP succesfully for DNLA. I got it for $15 on sale at Frys. The TV has no way to know it's not hard-wired. I was afraid perhaps the througput would be too slow on wireless to watch videos, but at least the Divx files I tried all work fine.

It's a trade off between using the DLNA and not needing to copy files to a USB drive versus using the USB and getting to FF/REW. At least there are options...

Hey, that's good news.

Naturally, we don't support DLNA wirelessly, but you're free to share your expertise.

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?
