streaming from PC to TV problem

by mreedy02 / August 12, 2010 12:53 PM PDT

i just got my wireless lan stick, connected it to the tv, and started the media server... the tv shows the vids that were added, but says that the file isn't recognizable...

i read a lot of the threads here and i see that i may need to reformat the files or something...

my question is, i have a lot of dvds on my pc.. all VOB files... how do i make those show up on my TV... if i need to reformat them, HOW??

i only bought this tv so i could finally burn all my dvds to my pc and just stream them to my tv (getting rid of all that bulk of jewel cases and discs)

i would like to know the very best possible software to use...

Windows XP
WIS09ABGN LinkStick Wireless LAN Adapter

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?
