I ahven’t been onthis board much beucase my player works pretty well for what I want – watching movies streamed from my PC. However, about once every other week or so I get a loss of communication.When selecting a file to stream, I will get the circle arrow thing and it just goes on and on. i cannot select anyhting. Rebooting teh PC does nothing; rebooting the SMP (turning it off then on via power button) does nothing. The only thign that works is reaching behind the SMP unplugging it then plugging it back in (hard boot). Then everyhting wokrs fine, except when I first select my folders, it tells me that there was a loss of communication and I have to re-select network share>windows>the name of my PC. then everyhitng works.
We leave the player on all of the time and this usually happens when we first sit down to watch something. Occaisionally (1 out of 10 times) a movie or file will stop playing while we are watching it and we have to do hard boot thing.
