I have several WD TV Live boxes in my home, all network hardwired via gigabit ethernet. All are using FW 1.09.10. Router is an ASUS NT-R16. Main server computer is ASUS GC-5270 quad core w/ W7 64 bit, with 8TB of internal/attached storage.
I have been using Mezzmo quite successfully for the past year as a media server instead of using network shares. It has been very stable and easy to use. Set up perfectly right out of the shoot. Even my 8 year old has a good handle on getting to what she wants.
I have been wanting to try PlayOn and yesterday downloaded the free trial version to see what was up. Mezzmo doesn’t have channels, so I wanted to see what PlayOn could do. It downloaded fine, and the WDTV could see it fine. I can navigate to the channels and even get maybe 5-10 seconds of one of the videos to play. Then the media server disconnects. Often it disconnects before I finish navigating a file menu. I have tried every combination of turning off security software, including having everything off, and still no joy. I have also played around with the PlayOn settings trying different quality levels and such. Yet, I read that lots of people have success with PlayOn.
Any suggestions? Router settings? Security settings?
