A couple of days a go I upgraded to the new WDTV Live from the 2nd generation version so I could enjoy the slicker interface.
All my media is stored on my NAS : the QNAP TS-110. Unfortunately I was unable to access the media files on this device though the ‘Network Share’ option when selecting a ‘Content Source.’ Even though the folders on the NAS containing the media files where showing, when I tried to open any of them I was prompted with the message '‘There is no media in the current folder’.
After several days of searching the internet and various forums for a resolution to this I gave up and called WD technical support. After an hour of trying various things, no joy.
But I persisted and eventually found a solution:
Login into your QNAP ADMINISTRATION page through your web browser.
Under ‘Access Right Management’, click ‘Share Folders’
Click on the ‘Share Folders’ tab if not already opened and you should see a list of folders on your NAS that are being shared under ‘Folder Name’
Under the heading ‘Action’ you will see various icons. Click on the one labeled ‘NFS’ to change the ‘NFS Access Control’
In the pop-up that appears change the drop-down for ‘Access Right’ to ‘No Limit’
Hope that helps someone as I struggled with it for days. If nothing else it will be a reference for me in case I forget how I did it.
Btw, I didn’t have to do any of this for my older WDTV Live so I am not sure what changed between models.
Edit: forgot to mention: after logging into your QNAP ADMINISTRATION page, you may also need to go to ‘Network Services’ and check the ‘Enable NFS Service’ box under ‘NFS Service’
