I have had this WD TV Live for over a year now and have always been able to play video’s directly from my 1TB Harddisk.
But because we’re all modernising, I set-up a new NAS that I bought (a QNAP TS219P-II) today. I am able to access the NAS from anywhere on my network, except for the WD TV Live.
I have no clue or whatsoever to what the problem might be.
I have been messing around with the Network Settings all day, without luck.
After changing it to what I think is correct:
DNS: <IP given by ISP, copied from a PC on same network>
The WD TV finally gave me 3 “passes” on the network check, but after running the check again multiple times, it resulted in errors again (without changing any settings)
When the connection was still stable, I navigated to “Video > Network Shares” and the NAS appeared. It disappeared after 5 seconds.
When I now try to open Network Shares it doesn’t do anything; no error, nothing. Unless I remove the internet cable, then it says it can’t connect.
I don’t know why I can’t access anything on the NAS from the WD TV. After these changes and firmware upgrade (from 1.01.00 to 1.06.15) the WD TV won’t even read USB connected harddrives anymore.
- QNAP is accessible from other computers
- I run a Microsoft network
- Workgroup is WORKGROUP (also on WD TV)
- Setup: Modem > Router (Linksys E2500) > Linksys 8 Port Switch > All computers and WD TV and NAS
I have no idea what the issue is and what I am doing wrong.
Does anyone know where I can start with looking?
Help is very much appreciated.
