I have two different brands of streaming media players connected via HDMI to my home theater system. Each unit fills in gaps in the other’s features or performance. I am not an expert of the different unit and Windows 7 options to set up streaming for each unit, but I seem to have a conflict that I would like assistance on:
The WD TV Live Windows Folder Sharing setup requires “Media Streaming is Off” under Network and Sharing Center/Change Advanced Sharing Settings. The other unit, Brand X, relies on Windows Media Player, which requires that Media Streaming be turned on.
WD TV Live works when Windows media streaming is off. When Windows streaming is on, the other unit works.
Can WD TV Live work with Windows streaming on?
