    Media player and VLC do not see networked TV

    I have a wired connection to my TV. The TV and Home network devices see each other on LAN1. However, unable to cast to TV as the win10 media player and VLC do not see LAN1.
    However, if I switch the connection from the TV to the DVD recorder (same LAN1) all is fine and films can be watched.
    Both devices are set to share media.

    Further to the above:
    In Home group joined, media streaming options
    under local networks I have the DVD and under all networks I have the TV.
    As I can operate the DVD under local network, I will have to some how get the TV moved from all networks to local network.

    Any ideas please?
