I am using a WD Live TV Streaming player with the latest 5/13/2012 firmware 1.08.17.
My data resides ona Synology DS110J NAS (video, photo, music).
My two questions are as follows:
* 1) Navigation to appropriate source.
My NAS is a “media server”, DLNA certified and all does play propery so far, no issues other than navigation.
1.a. If I click on “Videos” on the WDLTVS, I see 3 folders correlating to my 3 root shares on the NAS: Video, Music, Photo. But, all I want to see is “Video” and have it enter the video folder
1.b. If I click on “Music” on the WDLTVS, I see 3 folders correlating to my 3 root shares on the NAS: Video, Music, Photo. But, all I want to see is “Music” and have it enter the video folder
So, How can I set things up so that when I click on a menu item, it goes directly in to it and does NOT show the other root sources ???
* 2) Given I already have a “media server” in the Synology NAS, what functionality do I gain byt using the WDLTVS “Media Library” functionality ? Does it scan use DLNA or Network access? Will it scan my Synology to find all Music, Video, and Photo files? If so, how oftern does it re-scan, etc… Hopefully my questions make sense…
Truly any help here is appreciated.
Perhaps I need to, for all sources, NOT use DLNA but rather direct network access to the files and that will allow me to do what I want to do ?
