I'm a noob, so I apologize if this issue has been discussed before, but here's my problem:

I stream media to my PS3 over wireless G. Under Vista, this was tempramental but it mostly worked. I upgraded to Win7 x64 7127 Ultimate last week, and all of the media streaming through Windows Media Player worked FINE.

Then I installed TVersity. And everything worked fine.

Then my PS3 stopped seeing my Media Player server on the computer. It only saw TVersity. But that was fine, because it still saw TVersity and TVersity streaming worked FINE.

Then one morning I woke up and the PS3 didn't see TVersity anymore. Just to emphasize, to the best of my knowledge - NO CHANGES WERE MADE between TVersity working fine and not appearing at all.

Initially I thought there was an issue with TVersity, so i ran the config for it again, and it worked again. Then it stopped. Then the Win7 Action Center told me I had an ffdshow-related conflict. Updated ffdshow and TVersity came back, but the WMP server remained gone. Then TVersity disappeared again. The PS3 notification only said "Playstation has lost contact with the Media Server."

I tried turning user account control off, then turning it on again, then turning it off again. I tried re-configuring TVersity, re-installing TVersity, uninstalling TVersity. I tried configuring the media streaming settings in Network & Sharing Center - my "share these media...." box is checked. Just like with my old copy of Vista Ultimate x64, network discovery is off for some reason and I can't turn it on. I click "turn on network discovery," it clicks, the window closes, then when I reopen the window, it's still set to off. I also can't turn on media streaming. I click "turn media streaming on" and the wait icon appears for a second, cycles, and then media streaming is still set to off.

Again, sorry if this has been covered before but if anyone could help or at least point me to a thread where this is being discussed, I'd be really appreciative.

OK, so I see there are no takers. Well, in the event that anyone else runs into it, I've found what appears to be a solution, at least it's working FOR NOW. After a bunch of trickery and whatnot, I uninstalled TVersity, ran CCleaner's registry fixer, turned User Account Control off, rebooted the machine, and installed TVersity again. This time, when I went through the configuration, I did NOT check "Disable Windows DSSP Service" even though it appears at first to be something you'd want to do in Win7. So far, everything is working fine. I'll update the next time a butterfly flaps its wings in East Asia and I lose my media streaming again.

Update: TVersity disappeared again. Re-running the TVersity configuration utility did nothing. I am now out of ideas.

I also cannot turn on media streaming. I click "turn media streaming on" and the wait icon appears for a second, cycles, and then media streaming is still set to off.
