streaming video from PC to Sony Bravia TV

I am unable to stream a sample of Windows7 video from my PC to Sony Bravia TV using "Play To" feature of WMP 12. It says "file format is not supported" but if I play locally the file play no problem. I know my "Play To" is set up properly because I can stream the same video to my laptop and vice versa. How do I set up the TV to properly work with WMP 12?

My next step is to be able to play x.264 HD files.

DLNA technology makes it easy to view photos, stream movies or listent to music wirelessly from your computer. While it is easy, the set up will vary based on things like the operating system.

The following solution on the Sony esupport site contains videos and steps to help explain the DLNA feature and walk you through the set up.

Re: streaming video from PC to Sony Bravia TV

Hi Realguy54!

 
The KDL40XBR2 is not an internet capable TV thus you cannot stream videos from your computer to the TV through DLNA. However, you can use the TV as a monitor for your computer. For more information on connecting a TV to a computer for use as a monitor please click here
