Just got a WDTVLive Hub and like it so far but I am a little confused on the Network Share Folders.
I have a Win 7 x64 wuth all my media on it spread across 3 hard drives. All the folders are set to share across the home network, there are several on each drive. I use Windows Media Center and Media Browser plugin but as I have an older TV in the basement I cannot use my laptop to just plugin via HDMI. So the HUB seemed to be a good fit.
When I use the HUB and view the Videos, I get my "library "folderrs. In Music I get “Users” Why is this? The only Folders shared are the ones containing my media. In both of these case I have to navigate through each and every folder to get to the music or video file. For the DVD rips I have to select the actual VOB file which seems strange.
Shouldn’t it just play the movie when I click on the Movie folder instead of going into the VIDEO_TS folder then selecting the VOB? I must be doing someting wrong.
HTPC Drive C: Movies, TV Shows, Home Movies, Concerts, Pictures
HTPC Drive D: HD Movies, Movies, PodCasts, Movie Trailers
HTPC Drive F: HD Movies, Movies
My PC Drice C: Music
Media Sharing is enabled for all devices across the network.
Firmware version 2.03.24.
I tried using the Media Library but it was indexing my entire hard drive and not just the media folders. Turned it off and reset as it too made me navigate through each and every folder to find the movie/video/music file I wanted.
How can I get the HUB to only display the folders that are shared and not the entire dirve? I tried setting up an additional account and that failed as well.
Any help or direction is greatly appreciated. I like the device - just need to get it working the right way.
