Does anyone know how to stream from their mac laptop via a Sony Blue Ray player?

I have both a Sony TV and Sony Blue Ray player and have not had issues with either since I purchased them both about 3 years ago.  I keep hearing I need to replace the player but it to works fine except for it just recently 'stopped' finding the server connection.  Comcast says it is Sony and not them, even though I had a series of internet/server connection failures all at the same time.  My WIFI works great and I don't think it is my modem or my router, like Comcast keeps saying.  Any thoughts or ideas on the most efficient set up are welcomed!  I am really missing my streaming of Pandora when working and just being at home with music in the back ground.  Not to menton really missing steaming videos/mys shows from Netflix from the TV!

For us to better assist you with your concern, please provide the model number of the Sony TV and Sony Blu-ray player that you have. 

 

Also, please provide more information about the issue. Are you trying to stream music / video from you computer through the media server or from the Sony BD player or TV directly? Please provide the error message, if there's any.

Well that is okay, I don't need to at this point. Since my Sony Blue Ray player no longer allows me to stream as mentioned in another article I am back to the darks ages of hooking my TV to my mac via the correct adapter I picked up yesterday from and local Apple store.  So for $29.95 I am now able to stream movies via my laptop to my TV.  Not he best picture even though I have monkied with the pixels and got this to work as best I can not to mention I did have to go in and adjust the audio settings on my laptop to pick up the sound from the TV.  

 

BYW its a BDP S380, remote RMT S109A, and in the other article I posted I described the lenghty steps I have gone thru as suggsted by a variety of web sites about the blue ray player simply no longer allowing the applications to work at all.

 

You can close this one out.
