    I have a Sony nsz-gt1 (Blu Ray player + Google TV) and have encountered a problem using Google TV's built-in media player app to watch content stored on my computer. I recently upgraded to Windows 7 64 bit and have been completely unable to get my player to locate files or folders marked for sharing on my computer. When I search for devices, it will only find the internal memory and any USB drives plugged in. Before a recent move, I had Windows 7 32 bit and it seemed to work fine. When I searched for devices then, my main folder I set up to share from my computer would show up and I would be able to choose from folders and files therein. After finishing said upgrade (with many frustrations along the way, including a stint using an old copy of XP I had laying around) I now get nothing. It's been a while since I set it up last, so I don't know if I'm making a basic mistake, or if 64 bit doesn't play well with the player, or if it's just plain glitchy and there's no known fix. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.
