Just received my MyBook Live 3TB NAS yesterday and tried it on my Android Tablet, iPad, Android SmartPhone and Wife’s iPhone, Windows 7 computer and everything worked great. Was able to access the storage with Wifi via IP Address, DLNA with Windows 7 and using the W2Go application on the apple devices.
I then tried to get my Television to detect the device, this is where the headache came in. So as I said, everything seemed to be working right out of the box, but my Samsung TV wouldn’t detect the device even though the Wireless signal was connected and I am able to watch Netflix on the TV.
I try to search for the device by switching difference sources, and it doesn’t find it. When I switched it over to a wired Ethernet cable, it shows up right away and the Twonky Server was being picked up. As soon as I disconnect it, I am unable to find it again.
I’m not sure what the problem is and I hope someone can help me out. I have a FIOS Router that the MBL is connected to, it’s using a older firmware because I tried to upgrade it to the latest one and that proved the same results. My TV is connected to the wireless signal off of the FIOS Router.
Please help, I am so excited about the MBL and would like to get it to stream wireless with my TV, if I have to I’ll end up using a hard wire, but for now I would like to avoid it since I would have to pull another cable through my wall and it has a center stud dividing the wall into two sections.
Thanks you all your help and hopefully this frantic posting makes sense.
