BUG: movie browsing show also the .jpg file!


#1

The miniature video browsing is showing me the .jpg related to the film! So the list is now double, the real film and the associated jpg!

I have to click to check if its a film or a jpg!!

This in the network share connection, from a windows server 2008 R2 pc file share, with the latest .24 firmware.

Yes, this is a known issue.   Go find it in the Ideas Lab and VOTE for the fix.  I know, it sounds corny to go vote to fix a bug, but supposedly it increases the priority.   

WD might not consider it a bug; it may be working “as designed.”  Supposedly it does not do this if the storage is directly attached.

I could very well be wrong, but I think this has to do with samba itself rather than the device. Since the drive is seeing it as a simple Samba share, it is displaying what it finds. Samba doesn’t have the ability to filter based on extension or file-type. I think the fix would need to be made on the computer side (i.e. every major OS and NAS drive).
