Losing wireless connection during TV playback

I am running the below rig and connecting wirelessly via my DSL Router to my Blu-ray player which is connected via HDMI to my TV. Using Windows Media Center I have been recording shows via an OTA antenna. They are in .wtv format and going on the 500GB HDD. Playing these files on my TV has been going well until this week. During playback we frequently lose the connection. I have tried power cycling the router and the player, re-entering my settings in the player and connecting via Cat 6 cable. The only clues I have are that I recently did a second firmware update on my player (did not occur immediately after that) and I sometimes get the following message on the computer... Media Foundation Protected Pipeline EXE has stopped working. Help! The "Help" is not part of the message but is my sincere plea for assistance. Thanks.

To summarize setup: Desktop via Cat6 to Router via wireless to Blu-ray via HDMI to TV

  1. One other note, I also connect via a couple of different laptops to the wireless network without problem.
