WDTV streaming, trying to connect over Windows share to my Synology NAS.
I’ve always had problems using the My Media Library with my Synology… I would lose a connection and it’d never come back unless I did a factory reset. So I just turn it on to do metadata updates and then switch to “Network Share” for my content source.
Upon first updating the firmware I had no problems. However, after switching back to Network Share I got a message of “Unable to connect to the selected source. Please make sure the selected source is active and available for sharing.”.
So OK, might be the NAS. Reset it, no help. Factory reset the WDTV, same message. ROLL BACK the firmware, success again.
Anyone have any suggestions on what I might try? From a feature perspecitve I LOVE the idea of this new release. One click into my movies basically eliminates my pain from not being able to use the media library.
Oh, I should mention that I can connect and use my NAS using DLNA, so it’s not strictly a connectivity issue. Seems to be something with credentials being passed.
