I'm running Debian Wheezy. Let me know what other info you need.

I finally got the window box to read my Debian machine. Debian has
been reading Windows forever. Just got a new TV and have it connected
via WiFi to router. It can read media files (images, music, video) on
the windows box but it can't see anything on the Linux machine.

You probably need a DLNA server, such as minidlna, mediatomb, or others.

If you are running Gnome I suggest you install rygel. This DLNA server share
as default all files in $HOME/Pictures $HOME/Videos and $HOME/Music
and has a GUI; rygel-preferences


Thanks. I have both rygel and minidlna setup. Only problem was I had to change my root folder Music, Pictures & Videos to link to my home folders. For some reason it defaults to root folders.
