If I try to use Media Player to view photo's stored on a shared folder on my PC, HDTV Media Play says "Request Can not Be completed".
My WIFI network is properly configured to view online movies (e.g. Blockbuster online)..
I downloaded and installed Samsung's DLNA application PC Share Manager. I shared my picture folder in this app. I set the Changed State for these files. Access Permission is "Accept"
The HDTV Network sees my PC and displays it with its correct WIFI network name. Network test works fine.
I entered the WEP key. Network Type is "OPEN"
Again I checked the Network test and it says "OK"
WIFI is 802-11b. PC OS is Windows 7
Media Player works fine if plug in USB drive.

I did some looking on Samsung's website and as far as I can tell the DLNA feature does not work over WiFi. All I see is that it requires a wired LAN connection.
Sorry that I was not able to solve this.

Hmm. I don't think that is it.
My users manual has Media Play DLNA and it has instructions for both LAN AND wireless. I chatted with a Samsung rep, who believes DLNA doesn't support Windows 7. not sure if I believe this as my PC shows up on the Samsung HDTV and the DLNA network test you can elicit from the Samsung says checks ok..... so where does that leave me. When I get time I'll try and download Media Play to a Windows XP OS PC on my wireless network.

Are you sure about that model number? I can't find any info on it.

The correct model number is LN40B650 and I have a series 6 users manual that is for that particular model.
online instructions also say wireless will work. "Your Samsung HDTV can only use a wired LAN connection to the network interface.
However, your networked PC can share files to your Samsung TV through both wired and wireless connections to the network interface. It is recommended that you use at least an 802.11g wireless connection (54 Mb/s) to your networked PC for viewing photos and videos and listening to music...."

The only thing I can think of is a potential settings issue with any anti-virus/firewall program. I've also heard less than good remarks from reputable people about the overall compatibly and functionality of DNLA TVs.
