What should I do when I try to project with Wi-Fi MediaConnect and a message says that there is no compatible (Philips) TV on my network?

Make sure your TV is switched on and connected to your home network. For information about how to set up your Wi-Fi USB adapter and wireless network, see the Quick Start Guide provided with the adapter.
Make sure your PC is connected to the same network as your TV. You can do this by checking the IP address of both devices. The first three decimals should be the same: e.g. PC (192.168.1.10) TV (192.168.1.12).
For the TV to be visible within the network, the “Show PC media files” setting, which is located in the “Network settings” menu, should be set to “ON.”
If your PC is running a firewall program, check that your firewall allows “Wi-Fi MediaConnect” to send and receive data through the network. Refer to your firewall documentation on how to do this.
After you connect your TV and PC to your network, wait for a minute before you start to project. It can take a little time to establish new connections.
