    Windows 8 media streaming will not turn on


    Can anyone help with the following problem regarding media streaming in windows 8. Up until recently I could stream video films from my HP laptop & HP desktop onto the TV via DNLA.

    After following several posts on various sites it seems that when I try to start the windows media player network in the services I get the error message "windows could not start the windows media player network sharing service on the local computer.


    Error 1068. The dependency group failed to start."


    In the dependencies tab in the lower box of the two "the following system components depend on this service"

    The box is greyed out and the words no dependencies is displayed.


    Does anyone have any ideas if this may be the problem?


    Thanks in advance
