Some observations on Network Shares

I got a WDTVL+ last week. Got internet hooked up to it, no problems, netflix, youtube all work… Could not get wdtv to see my network shares no matter what… Set up shares with everything wide open access to everyone and still nothing. Well after reading about this “Master Browser” thing, I decided to turn on the wdtv AND THEN restart my PC’s both of which have shared folders. Lo and behold there are the network shares. So with the wdtv it must be something about the order of which things are booted. Tried wireless first and could not stream anything reliably. With a wired connection everything I tried streams flawlessly EXCEPT for VOB’s. They seem to stutter. MKV’s and AVI’s play just fine. have not tried ISO’s yet.
