Will it ever be possible or has anyone every successfully been able to tell the WD player to play a file located on a NAS from an external source (automation software) via the UPNP command SetAVTransportURI? Every attempt results in a black screen on the WD that says “this is sharing content from windows”
Also, will it ever be possible to send play,pause,stop etc. via UPNP to a WD player? All UPNP transport commands are simply ignored except for pause. Pause actually pauses the movie for about 200 milliseconds then the movie immediately starts playing again.
This is all using the latest firmware. Has anyone actually seen this work?
