I have an issue where my HUB does not see any of the media servers on my network. When I am selecting a content source, (for videos or music) if choose “media Server”, I get the error message “No content source available”.
I have several media servers on my network, but the specific one I am trying to find is my PlayOn server, which streams Internet media. The odd part for me is that both my Roku and my LivePlus have no problem seeing PlayOn and showing any of the channels. THe LivePlus actually sees 3 of my Windows 7 boxes as media servers (I have them setup as MS’s to test this issue) and can play content from them without any problems.
The HUB can find all of the other computers, including the one running PlayOn, over SMB and connect to them and play media from their shares.
I am out of ideas. I can push content to the HUB from PlayOn mobile on my Nexus7, and I can also use Twonky beam (thanks to mike27oct) to stream content to the HUB as well. It just does not see any of these devices on my network on it’s own without the media being pushed at it.
Am I missing a setting somewhere that allows the HUB to see media servers? As above, the LivePlus works like a champ and sees all of them just fine. (that is still a GREAT product if you don’t need a pretty front end)
Any idea greatly appreciated. I can continue to use the Roku for this purpose and still get the content to the same TV, but of course that is not really the right answer. I have to be missing something and it frustrating the #@$#! out of me :confounded:
