I have a wdtvlive connected to my NAS synology 413. It’s hard wired via Ethernet cable I don’t use wifi.
Firstly are you meant to point the media player to local server? That’s what I would of thought it was?
I have had issues where since my power went out in the house. The wdtvlive media player only connects to network shares windows and then I can see my server. I’m pretty certain it was working when I pointed the media player to local server but not entirely sure.
All I know is that when it connects via Windows network, my movies freeze have way through the show to the point I have to restart. I never had this problem prior to the power outage we had.
