Samsung Allshare - anyone have any experience?

Just bought myself a shiny new Samsung UE40ES8000 TV. In theory, it should talk to the PCs on the same network. It 'sees' them - but no way can I get it to fetch files from those PCs. Has anyone out there managed to get this to work, and have any pointers?

Have you not got the manual with it? Have a look at page 577 or rather 602 which seems to set it out what you want to do.

Is it connected to the network?

I'm only used to the Allshare app on my phone and rarely use it.

Thanks guys. Yes, I'd read the instructions. I've installed Allshare on the relevant PCs, but I fear I may have a router issue that's preventing them talking. My assumption, as the TV can 'see' the PCs, is that they are indeed on the same network - it's just a question of finding content on the PCs from the TV.
