    TV question...

    Bit of a cheek asking this - but someone might know.

    I have a LG TV which has a "Plex Media Client" embedded.

    I have the Plex Media server installed on XP PC.

    The PC has wifi and ethernet.

    It streams video fine through the wire, but if I disable the ethernet controller. nothing over the wifi.
    I can ping TV and router and PC (both wifi and wired) fine.
    Netstat shows the Plex port is open
    Have tried rebooting everything in various combinations.
    Firewalls for wifi / wired set the same - and tried disabling the firewall altogether
    Netmasks all the same
    Everything DHCP

    When you run an app like Plex, apart from disabling the network controller, if there a way to force it to bind to a specific NIC ?

    Looking on google they talk about setting wifi for "home" mode and not "public" - but these settings are not on XP, and in any event they just
    setup the firewall differently...?

    I hope I am not displaying my ignorance publicly - anyone got any ideas...

    (BTW when it works - Plex is a great product)

    Does the TV have wireless built in, or do you need a dongle? If the latter, do you have the "official" dongle? I have seen mixed reports with people just using any old wireless dongle.

    I couldn't bring myself to pay £80 for an LG wifi dongle - so the TV is wired (in fact via another Comtrend pad)

    Sorry for delay - I realised I totally misunderstood the question!

    What model is the TV/does it do DLNA?
