I am a long time user of the WDTV live devices. I have both the older style WDTV Live with the smaller remote and the newer style WDTV Live.
Some background on my issue:
Older WDTV is directly wired into my network
New WDTV is wirelessly connected to my network.
Running Windows 7 Professional and have always had a user ID specifically for my WD’s.
Unfortunately around the time that I updated my newer WDTV Live to the latest firmware (1.12.14) I also began experimenting with the Homegroup feature in Win 7. I created a home group and then tried to sync all of my devices with some success but then removed the homegroup. Since I did this, the newer WDTV can not even see my PC on the network but my older WDTV has no troubles. I have done a reset to the newer WDTV, tried the newer WDTV directly wired into the network, changed settings on my Windows 7 machine but still can not see the computer.
I believe the issue is in my Windows 7 machine but can not identify where or why the older WDTV still works.
ANY help would be appreciated.
