I just bought a WD TV Live, and it’s working quite well so far. I need to decide whether to keep it, within the next couple of days.
I only have one problem, which is a deal-breaker right now.
My videos are kept on a server network share, added to the WD TV with the media library manager. But the server is not turned on all the time. It hibernates when it is not needed.
If the WD TV Live does a scan when the server is hibernating, of course it finds there are no files. Next time I use the WD TV it tells me that the video folders have been removed from the library. I can fix this by going to ‘settings’ and manually rescanning the folders when the server is awake, but it’s not a good solution. I don’t want to teach the whole family this process, just so they can see their videos.
- Is there any way to specify when the WD TV scans? So I can set a time when the server is usually awake.
- Or to make it only scan when I tell it manually? I will do this after I have added new videos to the server.
The PDF manual gives no real information on this. Thankyou for any help you can give,
