HI… never had any issues with my player, very happy actually.
WDTV Live 1.06.43 Windows 7, wired network and wireless, the WD is wired
After last update, my network shares are no longer visible on the WDTV.
Did a factory reset after firmare upgrade as usual, set the network to auto, no issues. Cleared and redid login info.
On my pc, i can always see a mapped drive to the wd. I can move files to it no problem. I can map a new drive, although the WD does not show up in the browse window, but if i know the path, it maps it.
In my network the WDTV box is not there. Just my pc, and my wifes laptop when she turns it on.
On the WDTV, the media server part works, i can see files from my pc and wifes laptop.
The network share does not even give the chance to login to either, nothing.
The WD is in my router, shown connected whenever i look, except this morning it was not there. I rebooted the router, it showed up, but it still was not shown in the Network.
The WD has a reserved IP.
I can always ping the WD. and it responds.
SOMETIMES loging on and off my pc it shows up in the network all of a sudden.
SOMETIMES rebooting the router, turning off my pc and restarting, or powering the WD on/off makes it show.
Not always though, or maybe its a combination of one or two that makes it work, but i sholdnt have to.
I have not changed any setting on the pcs… worked flawlessly before. Not a biggie, i usully move the files to the HD at the box when i want to watch, just more a "it isnt working right " bother.
1 - Any ideas?
2 - I couldnt find it quickly… where is the link to the last firmware before this update. I was always up to date, used every frimware, so i must have been on the one just before this one. And instructions on the rollback? As i recall there is a edit to the file and the version # to fool it.
Rather fix it than rollback
Thanks. sorry if long, tried to give as much info as possible
