DLNA client in WinXP with Panasonic player RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have dlna configured on a Panasonic DMR-XW390 set-top box and am trying to play its videos on my WinXP desktop. The Panasonic box sees my PC (displays its MAC address) and the PC successfully pings the Panasonic, but Windows Player 11 sees no devices when I go to 'share media' - which I gather is how I connect to operate as a client. ( I have SSDP running on the desktop).

    Various forum discussions suggest I'm not the only person having trouble trying to use XP as a DLNA client - can anyone confirm whether it should or should not work - and if so where I can look for complete 'how to' - thanks, DJGS.
