I have a WD TV Live Streaming Media Player and it seems that it won’t stay connected to my Windows 7 shares once the player goes idle (screensaver comes on). It’s like it times out because if I disable the player from going idle then it never disconnects (my issue with doing this is burning out my TV or whatever since the screensaver won’t come on). Sometimes coming out of idle, after a few moments the player will resume but most of the time I get a message about how the shared folder was disconnected and I need to go through the whole menus of logging back in. It’ll usually take a few tries before it connects to my shares and sometimes I need to re-enter my Windows credentials in the player.
Is there a setting somewhere where I can tell my router, or Windows 7 to maybe not disconnect from the WD TV Live player when it’s on, or to always allow connections from it, or something?
I have the latest firmware on the WD TV Live Player (2.01.86) and running Windows 7 Pro 64-bit
