I have a 2.5TB hard drive connected to my WD TV Live that I store my media on. I have this drive mapped as a network drive on all three computers inthe house (all running Windows 8.1). Normally I transfer stuff from my computers to this drive. However, seemingly at random, the mapped drive will no longer be accessible from any of the computers until it randomly reconnects itself. I never had this problem with the first TV TV HD player (that frst one that was rounded on the front), or this one until a few months ago. It worked fine under Windows XP, Windows 8 and 8.1. My router settings haven’t changed, and the WD TV Live is set to always be on.
I do not know why it is doing this. However, I noticed that when it does this, the WD TV Live does not show up as a connected device on the router. Is there a setting in the player that disconnects it fro mthe wifi network to save power or anything?
