    1. Click "Settings"
    2. Click "Network"
    3. Click "Add SMB Share"
    4. Enter the info needed here.
    5. Note: display name can be anything but the rest of the info needs to match your computer setup.


    You should then see the new "Network" link in the list with the name you gave it. Just be sure that the folder that you have your videos in is shared out.

    Wireless is good. You just need a network connection.

    Wrong info entered or you don't have the folder shard out on your computer. Make sure the you are entering the correct IP, username, password and share (folder) name.

    Nope, I can stream just fine using Windows 7. You just have to make sure that you have the permissions setup correctly and the you are using the correct IP and folder name.

    You have to setup the permissions to the shared folder. When you do you can select a user (Windows login) to share it with. Most likely you will have to setup a password for the user as I don't believe Windows 7 will allow you yo connect with no/blank password. If you need help on setting up Windows 7 accounts and "File Sharing" you can google it or look on youtube for help with that.
