Re: [WIN8] Windows 8 Multimedia Device Issue
It was definitely a tricky one!
When I was driving last night, it hit me that it wasn't a Win 7 vs Win 8 thing and that it was wireless vs wired. The android remote control app not communicating with the TV really steered me away from it being a computer issue.
Luckily, I put the right search terms in to find that Verizon forum thread.
Lots of people with the same issue in that thread, but not much about this, in general. I suppose there aren't that many people on Fios, with the newest router (don't think it was an issue with the older ones), with the newest firmware (may have just be an issue on this firmware, which was only released a couple of weeks ago) who are trying to communicated with DLNA devices that are both wired and wireless. If all of my devices were wireless (which is probably very common), I'd never have noticed the issue.
Very happy to have figured this out as it would have continued to bug me.
