    Samsung BD-D5100 blu-ray connected via netwrok cable to router
    Samsung LA40D550 LCD connected via network cable to router

    I am struglling to use the allshar capability, neither of my samsung devices see my pc. i can also only see my tv in my network map.

    Please help.

    i take it you want to watch movies or play music from your pc on your samsung devices?

    you need a media server application running on the pc's, i use ps3 media server mainly because it's free and also because i can stream to my ps3
    this will allow you to stream via allshare, works on my samsung galaxy s2

    Or run the clunky Allshare software on your pc.

    Download from Samsung website.

    i have the clunky all share software on my pc.

    When i look at the software, i can see both my blu ray and tv is connected.

    I cannot see these devices on my network map. All my sharing options are correct and im also not able to see the devices on network sharing centre.

    my windows firewall is switch off.

    Im dont know what to try any more

    Rather use Serviio.
    ...IMHO.

    If I remember correctly you have to specify which content you want to share to which device as well.

    Allshare was just a pain in the end for me as it would work for a while and then disconnect.

    Agreed, the Samsung AllShare software for Windows is terrible. Serviio is probably the slickest, most compatible with Samsung hw DLNA server for Windows atm.

    My media server of choice is Plex Media Server, but the (recently introduced) DLNA server functionality is not ready for prime time yet.

    What do you mean you can't get Serviio to work? What's the problem exactly?

    Did you start the Serviio service?
