      Streaming movie from PC to TV problem

      Hi,

      I had fibre installed on Wednesday & all good except that last night i decided to stream a movie from my PC to my LG tv which is connected via homeplugs, all was good for about 30 mins then the TV just disconnected the stream. Got it back on & the same again after another 30 mins. Not sure if this is to do with the router timing out or my TV. I have checked the settings on the TV but can't find anything

      Sorry if this is the wrong forum to post it in...

      Thanks,
      Steve

      Keep an eye on it. If anything the components to watch are the HomePlugs (check that they too have the latest firmware), Ethernet cables (can get damaged) and WiFi connection.

      Keep an eye on it but it could just be a one off.


      Once had a jailbroken ATV2 stream an entire movie before then reporting that my network was to slow to stream successfully..
