Viera Cast ok, but cant stream to TV

Getting a bit frustrated trying to connect up my Panny G20 tv. Its connected via homeplugs to my BT Infinity broadband and I've done a successful connection test on the tv. I can use VieraCast with no problem but I cannot access my PC on the tv. When I look for the tv on the PC I cannot find it. Any ideas would be welcome. Thanks

If you have windows media player 11 or 12 installed on your PC, make sure the Library Sharing is turned on. This is off by default. You can then link your media folders to the Media Library.

If you need transcoding media files, you can try third-party media server programs.

Thanks for the reply, yes it is set to share with everyone. I think it must be a problem with IP addresses, but I'm not a techie.
Should the proxy port read "0" or should that be blank ?

Try Mezzmo even demo version instead of WMP. If Mezzmo is running and it cant see the server then its definitely a network issue of some kind, could be firewall related if you have any third party one installed on the PC that comes part of anti-virus package like Mcafee or Symantec.
