Password Recovery..

Has there been any update to getting a password back instead of going to SETUP / SYSTEM / DEVICE RESET??

 

Awhile ago I put some movies in a password protected folder.. I had forgot the password since I don't use it often.

 

I did that device reset, but that's a pain in the butt! It took FOREVER because it had to do some cataloging or whatever (I forget) and I also had to fool around getting network setup again which is always a pain in the butt. It takes awhile to get working.

 

So, now I forgot that password again. I've been holding off on a device reset out of fear.

Re: Password Recovery..

You really must write down this password and then you would not have to live in fear.

Re: Password Recovery..

The problem is I made the password like chicken00 or something. That makes it a pain in the butt to type by remote, so I never used it. I should have just made the password four easy numbers.
