Hi all, I have acquired some new home entertainment equipment over the last few month and have been reading and reading and experimenting with streaming. But still kind of confused. I have a Samsung 63" plasma TV, Pioneer SC-1222 receiver, and a new Samsung blue ray player. All of the equipment are hardwired to a Netgear 4 port switch, from there it is hardwired to my Netgear router. My desktop is hardwired to the same router. I am trying to get away from burning dvds. I would like to be able to stream the movies directly from my desktop into either the TV, DVD or the Pioneer receiver.
I have had some success in streaming some MKV movies using the Allshare software from Samsung. But sometime, some of the MKV files are not readable by the TV. At the same time, i have alot of movies that are ISO files. What do i need to do to the ISO files in order to stream and have the TV read them? I had tried Windows Media Player and find it too complicated to use. I don't want to buy another piece of equipment just for streaming the movies.
Please help me or point me to the right direction. thanks all.
