I have a WD TV Live mediaplayer (new version newest firmware)
and observe the following issues:
- When connection Harddisk via USB and connecting this as share to my computer:
If I download some files (via PC directly to the WD share) and playback (watch) some video from this drive at the same time, the system frequently looses the USB connection (=> asks me not to remove USB device without eject, but I did not remove it)
So I moved the harddisk as NAS to a router (TP-LINK WDR4300) and tried to playback the files via Media server.
- AVC (H264) encoded MP4 video files are obviously streamed as “audio” files by the media server or detected as such by the WD media player.
The picture is only seen in special menus of the media player where no background picture is displayed.
So I tried to access the NAS by its Network address from the router (\192.168.1.1\volume1) directly.
- However I cannot connect this drive from my media player. The Router/volume is not listed as Windowsnetwork and it is obviously not possible to provide the address to the networkdrive manually.
I am really frustrated because from 3 different options which I am willing to use, NONE works.
Any suggestions are welcome!
