This device is driving me crazy (WDTV Live Plus). It work really well (on Firmware 1.03.49) on a 24" iMac.
None of the later firmware upgrades worked well, so I kept rolling back to 1.03.49.
My iMac bit the dust 2 weeks ago, and has been replaced with a new 27"iMac. After using the exact same settings on the new iMac, I can not get the WDTV to see the shared folders?? I can easily get on my wireless Airport network, and the WDTV lists the iMac under Network shares just like before, however, when I try to log in I keep getting the same message “This network share can not be accessed”. I have tried dozens of the recommendations on this and other forums to no avail. I want my wireless streaming of shared folders/files back! Wondering if SMB/Samba has changed on the newer iMac?? Any ideas / help would be appreciated.
