    I just upgraded to the bionic two days ago from the first droid and need a little help please. I want to stream from my phone to the tv, the tv is not wifi, but my blu-ray theater system is. The tv is an insigna ns-32e570a11 and the theater system is a sony BDVE780W. I was trying to use the imediashare app do stream from the phone to the tv, but I get stuck at the screen that says "player buffering". the app works fine when i just play the video on the phone. wish to be able to share the photos on my phone as well on the tv. Is there a better app or something I am doing wrong? Thanks

    Hey, the blue ray theater system.. what brand is it and do you have it connected through the Ethernet or wireless connection?
    I have Samsung TV with built in wireless internet and Samsung blue ray wireless player and I have no
    problem using my Bionic.. it connects automatic to the TV. [internet tv]
    Samsung use Allshare and I play all my media though the software or phone. I also have another regular tv
    connected to Samsung blue ray wireless player. The united is connected though
    Ethernet and I can access the Bionic through the Blue Ray menu. So if you have it wired, you will have to
    used the Blue Ray menu to connect to your Bionic. Far as i know, it will not play any other way because
    if you don't have it wireless, Bionic cannot communicate with the device wirelesses.
    You will have to use the Blue Ray menu to access your phone. Your phone will be the source of movies, ets
    so i am guessing, that's why it only plays on your phone?

    the tv is a insignia ns-32e570a11, the blu-ray theater system is a sony BDVE780W. I am using a wireless connection. the imediashare app picks up the blu-ray theater system, just stays in the "player buffering" screen.

    yours is.... blue ray, Sony BDVE780W... connected though wireless

    I have Samsung blue ray wireless player. hook up though Ethernet

    both phone is Bionic

    you used Imediashare from Sony

    I used Allshare from Samsung

    I use my Samsung dvd player menu to select different devices.. Bionic, upstairs dvd, Samsung TV, PC, etc [you get the idea]
    I select Bionic and I can then access the folders and select the movie, picture, etc
    this is my set up in the basement and that's how i used it to play movies from the phone or access pictures.

    upstairs setup? both Samsung dvd and TV is internet ready.. I just point my phone and select movies
    and it plays, I select source, the phone and output to dvd or TV.. one other thing, on the
    Bionic, I used DLNA that comes with the phone.
