Samsung smart TV

daniel993, Nov 12, 4:06am
I am using Samsung all share on my PC to stream media to my TV. Ever since I have owned a TV I have had to turn the router on and off every couple of days so my TV and access my PC not sure why I have to do this but it works.I Now have a new problem while I am streaming media it suddenly disconnects from my PC after around a hour then reconnects 15 min later. Any ideas what is causing this is it something to do with my router!

Computer isnt going into sleep mode is it!
Make sure in your power settings under multimedia settings that "when sharing media" is set to "prevent idling to sleep"

Might not be the problem but worth checking
Edit thats on a win7 PC not sure if earlier versions of windows have that

I have set to the above hope that works. I had my power settings set to sleep after 5 hours.

Servers typically have static IP address, i.e., give your PC a static IP address.
