When I first connected the WD TV Live I was able to stream a 1080p mkv file from my Windows 7 x64 PC with no problems. The next day, it didn’t work. Then I changed some Windows settings and was able to view the movie again. Worked fine for 2 days and now it’s not playing again.
This is wired BTW, nothing wireless. Not sure if that matters.
I can give other details if need be but the bottom line is that, so far, thing device has been working intermittently. I really don’t like that. Tonight, when it stopped working, I got the “no media in current folder” error again.
I never had to load the cd-rom that came with the WD when I first set it up. Do I have to do that? When I go to Discovery on the Setup. under the Network Drives Found, it shows WDTVLive. Under Things to do, if I click on Map network drive it says No network share available. if I click on Browse network shares it shows No network share available.
Would buying a simple NAS enclosure help/hurt my situation? I would rather have something connected to the device so that if my PC were off I could still view movies. But if it’s going to continue to be flakey I don’t want to invest any more $$.
