Using Windows 7 network shares. I turn my pc off when it not in use. I have media library enabled on wdtv. If I turn the wdtv on first and then my pc it has trouble connecting. I will select my pc on the wdtv but then the circle keeps spinning. I have to restart the wdtv and then it connects to the network shares no problem. Sometime the spinning circle renders the wdtv unresponsive so a hard boot is necessary.
Someone mentioned that assigning a static IP might help, but this fix did nothing. All devices on my network have static IP’s.
I built a NAS so that I could leave the thing on 24/7 but the NAS didn’t work out. So now I’m back to my original setup.
Anyone have any ideas?
