No "Play To" for media files on XP


#1

Hi,

TIA for your help.

I have a WD TV Live Hub connected wirelessly using wireless network adapter to my home network which consist of a desktop running on XP and a notebook running on Windoes 7. The desktop is connected by LAN cable to a 2Wire 2701HGV-E gateway.

When i click “My Network Places” on my desktop, i can see the WD TV Live Hub on my Local network.

My problem is that i am trying to play media files from my desktop to my TV via the Live Hub but i cannot see the “Play To” option beside my media files for me to play to the TV via WD TV Live Hub.

I have no such problem on my notebook running Windows 7.

That’s because Windows XP doesn’t have Play-To functionality. Thats a Win7 exclusive.

You connect to your computer from the WDTV via network shares. Obviously you need to put your media into a shared folder on your computer.
