I just got a wd live tv hub. I have a drive letter for it. I can copy files to it and play the files. But I can’t seem to stream. I tried it with windows media player and one time it told me that it couldn’t stream because the wd hub was busy. I wasn’t using it and I don’t think it was doing a firmware update or anything. Not sure where I got that message from because I couldn’t replete it. other times when I tried, I just got an "An error occurred and when I clicked on that, it said to reboot the device and if that didn’t work to contact the manufacurer. If I click on the red button I see on the remote control I see…
If I click on media server I can see my shared folder on my pc. I can click on things but unfortunately I can’t play some of my wmv files on the wd device. They play fine on the pc, but I a get an unsupported file type error when I try to play them on the hub which is why I’m trying to stream them. Most wma files play fine but a group won’t.
If I click on Network Share, it wants a username and password, but I can’f figure out what it wants. I’ve tried my account name. I don’t have a password. I saw the homegroup has a password, I’ve tried it and even different combinations but nothing works. I do have a wireless network. There is a password if I connect a wireless device to it, but I don’t have to enter any password if I connect with a wire. I have the wd device hooked up with a wire. Is this network share my problem? Does it want my wireless password? Is there some other setting I’ve missed? Where do I need to be in the menus on the wd when I try to stream? Or is the problem that I have an account but no password.
