In windows 8.1, I have set up a folder to be shared using this method (although I never changed the registry settings). In my WDTV, I went to videos > select content source > network share > windows shares > DESKTOP > and entered my username and password.
This worked fine for a while and I was able to stream movies from my PC very well. However a number of times now I have received the error “Content source not found” and would I like to choose a different source. The error just seems to correct itself randomly over time (restarting the PC and the WDTV does nothing).
Is there any reason this is happening? Is there a known method to correct it? The firmware is up to date.
