Help. Windows Media Player streaming to TV crashes as Play To dialog box appears.
A strange problem I cannot find a solution for anywhere I've look so far. Using Windows Media Player 12, I go to (on wifi home network) "Play To" a video to my LG TV, the Play To dialog box momentarily appears then disappears right away and the video never plays. This used to work but since doing an image restore to my C: drive(new laptop setup) it no longer works. All software is the same, sharing is on, the TV is seen by WMP in the network & allowed and the TV shows up in the Play To option list for the chosen video. No video, pictures, music will stream to my TV anymore. I can however see & access all of that from the TV's input list & play any of the video's that way but that is a very slow & tedious process. I am able to stream to the TV using DivX Player but it randomly crashes all the time plus other irritating bugs that WMP doesn't have.
Alienware m17r2, Windows 7(fresh re-install), all updates.
