The manual is very vauge on the difference between media server and network share, doesn’t say which is better. How did I have Media Server working if I don’t have any DNLA devices? I did have Media Sever somehow working before, I know have Network share on though. Wish I knew what the heck happened.
This menu displays network attached UPnP media servers connected to your network and usage is optimized with DLNA compliant devices such as WD My Book Live personal cloud storage and WD TV Live Hub media centers.
I followed "Share a Folder on Your Computer” on page 35 from the user manual. I never opened up a homegroup and everything still works. I’m confused on why homegroup needs turned on?
And the folder I’m sharing is my uTorrent’s download folder, where the completed downloads go. For some reason when a new download is finished and I go to play on my WD TV it says that the file is unplayble or not recongnzied. The only way to fix it is to drag it from the folder onto my desktop and then drag it back. Or sometimes I have turn of the WD TV a few times for it to play. Any idea why this is happening?
Last, I added my video folder to “Media Library Manager for Network Share”. You can add single videos or complete folders, I added my folder where all my downloads go. When I select Media Library the tv shows and movie do show up with there covers and what not. But for some reason when I add a new video to the folder or when a video is newly downloaded, it doesn’t show up right away? How do I get Media Library to show videos that have downloaded automatically? For example, I have 52 videos in my downloads folder right now, they all show up. While I watch a show on my WDTV I was downloading another video. When it it finished downloading it didnt show up in the Media Library? It wouldnt show 53 files. I had to go back to Network Shares to play it.
