I just bought a new WDTV Live, cause I heard there was a new version out that I could control with an app for my iPhone and that it did some new some (like streaming from Slingbox). Well, I do all my videos over a file share from my Windows Home Server (WHS v1), which has mostly worked ok with the older box. (I would occasionally not see the server, but mostly worked ok.)
I just bought the new one, and updated it to the latest firmare (1.9.10). It occasionally sees the other computers on my network (WHS server, desktop, and laptop), but can’t connect to them, and after showing them once, they fall off the list and I just get the perpetual, orange, spinning, arrow. In fact, if I leave it long enough, the box can lock up and I have to pull the power cable to reset it. I know my computers are set up right, cause my old box still works; just not the new one.
Does the new one see Windows shares at all? From all the posts I’ve seen, it doesn’t and never has, even with old firmware. People talk about the new one taking master browser status, and I guess that messes up it’s ability to see other computer’s shares.
Thanks for the help!
