Hey guys, So i have an interesting problem I haven’t yet been able to tackle the symptoms being this;
-My external USB HDD is shared and can be access by many computers in the house
-WD TV Live Plus sees this network share and can access and browse it, pull up file info and stuff
-WD TV Live Plus cannot play anything on this network share; it starts then freezes then exits back to the browsing screen.
-WD TV Live Plus can play the same file only if it is sitting on my C: drive (not any other drive)
-I do not wish to employ DLNA as i HATE it for various reasons and wish to stay with network share.
Now here is the peculiar part;
-I dual boot into Snow Leopard (OSX), share the external NTFS USB HDD (preferences->sharing->file sharing->Windows (SMB) sharing) and then the WD TV Live PLUS can access the files on the external HDD and PLAYS them without ANY problems! (so it works in MAC)
Im running Windows 7 x64 Professional and Snow Leopard 10.6.7
WD TV LIve Plus Version is LATEST (just updated a few hours ago)
I guess now the obvious part;
