I have a windows 7 PC connected via ethernet to a Sumvision MKV player.
All I want to do is share the files to play them on that.
My 360 can happily stream the videos to it using the same system, however when I try to do it on this is doesn't seem to like it.
The UPNP option finds the device and then just gives the default public folders which I haven't got any videos in. So this sits there taking ages to load and then eventually finds the video files but its in a MASSIVE long list that is impossible to navigate and in fact crashed the system.
The network option finds my PC under Workgroup but then asks for a username and password.
I have specifically turned password protected sharing off everywhere I can find.
The network is listed and an unidentified public network and I have even tried disabling the guest account.
Despite all of this I still can't get past this login screen which by all rights shouldn't exist as I don't have a username and haven't ever setup any passwords.
