Okay guys, please excuse my ignorance, but I have been messing with this thing now for 2 days and still having problems. I have a PC (htpc) that is in one room of my house with a bunch of ripped DVDs and Bluray movies on it. I have just under 1TB of movies. But I wanted to watch them in all rooms/tvs of my house, so I picked up this WDTV Hub to put in my bedroom. If it works out, gonna get one for living room also.
Anyway, hooked it up, but didnt have ethernet cable run at first, so I transfered all my movies (were stored on an external usb HD) to the WDTV Hub… it worked great, been watching movies. But since I didnt have ethernet cable, I couldnt sync with my HTPC for other videos, music, etc.
so today I ran the ethernet cable and it worked right away. Did the firmware update and installed the WD Discovery, mapped the network drive (z:) and can now access my WDTV Hub from my computer. I even went in and cleaned up and changed names, etc… So far so great…
But here is my issue. I cannot seem to access the files on my computer from my WDTV, just other way around. How do I do that? I right clicked on specific folders on my computer to share with workgroup, but still not there on WDTV… Im sure this is something really simple and basic, but I cant figure it out.
Thanks ahead of time!!!
