My WD TV Live was working perfectly out of the box. I was able to stream content from shared folders on my PC (running WinXP) via my router (network cable) with no problems at all. The **bleep** thing played anything I threw at it. I was in Happy Land, living a blissful illusion that quickly came crashing down last week when the first signs of trouble started showing up.
Connection started dropping, finding my “network shares” proved to be difficult at times. Until finally, one day, the little **bleep** decided that I wouldn’t be able to access my network shares at all. In fact, nothing happens when I try to enter “network share”. Youtube and all that stuff is working fine though and I’m able to ping the device from my computer. But for whatever reason I can’t access the shared folders.
When I contacted the Western Digitals Customer Service they gave me the wonderful advice of turning the device off and on again… Gee, really? Never thought of attempting that several times with both the PC, router and WDTV, in different order of sequence!
Now I turn to you fellow gentlemen, in hopes of a solution. Anyone?
