I spent a number of hours reading up to try and find a solution for my problem, but no luck. Here’s my problem:
About five days ago I received my WD TV Live. I plugged it into my TV and attached an Ethernet cable, and after starting up it immediately asked to install the firmware update. I did this. Without even having to set up a network, the player found my shared folders on my PC (containing video), and I was able to access and watch all my files. It worked great - up until this morning.
Now suddenly I can’t access the network shares. I don’t know why this is, because I didn’t change anything on either my computer or the player itself. It’s like the button on the remote simply doesn’t work when I try to select the Network Shares. I tested the connection, and everything is fine, but I can’t access my folders via the player. The Workgroup is still running, and I can see this via both PCs on the network.
Another thing I noticed is that while the sharing worked my PC showed a little icon in the taskbar (Windows XP), showing it detects the WD TV Live. Now is no longer there.
The problem is that most solutions on the forums are very technical, and I’m afraid that doesn’t really help me, because I’m not very techy.
Can anyone help me at all?
