  1. Unable to see shared media on tv


    Hello!

    I am having problems seeing shared media on my Sharp tv.

    The pc which is running 10 home 1809 shows folders shared, media shared.

    When I try and access the music from my tv, freesat box, dvd player or youview box etc. it sees the pc as a media server.

    I open the media server browse the folders it sees the folder, but says it's empty.

    Any ideas?

    :)

  2. Unable to share media to TV after clean Windows 10 install


    I recently had to do a clean install of Windows 10 Home x64 (1511 Build 10586.318). Before the clean install I could share and view on my Panasonic TV all the photos / videos stored on my PC. Since the clean install, while all the media locations on my PC are listed in the Windows Media Player Libraries, including my OneDrive, only the OneDrive locations are visible on the TV (Windows appears to automatically add the OneDrive to the list, as if you remove it from the list of libraries it is added again automatically!). The TV is listed in the devices to which the media can be streamed on the Local network.

    I also have a Western Digital NAS drive and can stream all media to the TV from this without any problem. Can anybody suggest why the media located in the default Windows Pictures / Video locations cannot be viewed on the TV, while the OneDrive locations are and how I can solve this issue?

    Hi

    go here - Hauppauge | Page Not Found select "Windows Media Center install" tab

    look at - Setting up your TV tuner in Windows 7 Media Center - select download (will open a pdf with screen by screen instructions)
    "Download
    Here is a screen by screen view of the setup of Windows Media Center. It was based on the WinTV-HVR-1600, but the setup with other WinTV-HVR products will be similar."

    Follow the guide stage by stage

    let the TPU community know at what "step" Media Center gets stuck at Example: step 1, step 2

    nb: It may be to do with your zip code and or post code not being entered

    In regard to your DVD Rom drive - go to -control panel/device manager/DVD/CD-ROM drives -make a note of the make and model number Example: Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-215D ATA Device - highlight the device you have installed -press right mouse button-select properties-details-property and select Install Date from the drop down list and let us know this.

    atb (all the best)

    Window Media Player and Movies & TV arent working with internet conection

    Hi Carlos,

    I realize that WMP and M& TV app is not working on your PC. I will try to help you with this issue.

    As Windows Media Player is not able to access the file, suggest you to run this troubleshooter to check if that helps. Follow these steps:


    • Press Windows key + X and click on Control Panel.

    • Click on Troubleshooting and click on View all.

    Select “Windows Media Player Settings” troubleshooter and run it to check if that helps.

    Further, you may also take ownership of the file to check if that helps.

    Follow these steps:


    • Right click the file and select Properties.

    • Click the Security tab, tap or click Advanced, then tap or click Change. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

    • Type the name of the person that you want to give ownership to, and then click Check Names.

    Note: The account name for the person that you are assigning ownership to is displayed.


    • Click OK.

    • If you want this person to be the owner of the files and subfolders that are contained in this folder, select the “Replace owner on sub-containers and objects” check box.

    • Click OK.

    For the Movies & TV app issue, suggest you to post the query in the Movies & TV forum:

    Keep us informed to help you further.
