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
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?
