Success using TV Live as a file server?

Hi folks.

Just wondering how many people are using this device as a file server. I need to set up an SMB server (Windows sharing) in my home, and ideally the WD TV Live could fulfill this role.

I did all the necessary config a couple days ago, but access/connectivity from clients seems a little spotty. On a Windows 7 client, I will occasionally get the “path to share does not exist” message/error. It’s definitely not rock solid.

Just wondering what others’ experiences are. Not sure if it’s flaky TV Live firmware, my wifi router, or something else.


well it’s not really designed with that intention in mind, but yes it does work

as for your windows errors

try mapping the drive by IP address

and your errors will be gone
