Cannot retrieve media listing


#1

Hi,

I just set up my WD TV Live, and my Windows 7 media server is detected, but no file listing can be retrieved. The circular loading icon just displays. I’ve set up Homegroup permissions and media streaming properly (I think). Anyone ideas?

Homegroup doesn’t have anything to do with streaming.

Are you sure your files are supported by Windows Media?    MKVs and other files are NOT supported by Win7 Media Server.

I don’t see any value, in my opinion, of using the Win 7 media server.     I prefer Network Shares.
