Okay, I am real new… just got my WDTV Live a couple of hours ago. So far so good. I have a media server already setup in my house, and the WDTV found it right away, and is playing a video as I write this. My Netflix and Hulu Plus setup and are working without incident. The temperature on the WDTV desktop is wrong, hope it will correct soon… or that the temp will drop locally to match . The WDTV thinks it is 79, but it is more like 110 outside. I live in the Phoenix area, and we are having a HOT Summer.
Anyhow, all is not peaches and cream. I have been unable to get the media library setup. I am running Windows Vista 64 bit, and I setup a share for my media library… the WDTV refuses to use it, saying the folder is read-only. This is just not the case. The folder is open to be read/written/deleted/whatever. It has all permissions granted to “Everyone”. And according the the Windows properties display, the read-only state is indeterminate – which is the normal state for a folder, according the Microsoft tech support. There is no way to make it more open and available.
Any suggestions or ideas?
