    I can stream live football to my Pany smart TV via hdmi cable from my laptop okay. But when I get the streaming web site up on the TV it cannot open up to view the game , will only stream via laptop.
    Any help much appreciated :thumb:

    Its probably to do with DLNA [ Digital Living Network Alliance] the "supposed" built in universal cross device communication protocol. If you attempt to stream the live feed via the TV alone it either doesn't recognise the server its coming from or the video file format. DLNA devices are notoriously "buggy" Some of the Audiovisual gurus on here may be able to shed more light on this?
