Wd-tv live prioritise network shares over media servers, or favourite folder

Hi There.

I use my WD-TV live with only a NAS.  My NAS does have any media server support so i use it with network shares.  Everything works great except that everytime i want to play video the first option that appears is “Media Servers”. I know that it isn’t a big deal to change the selection to network shares but since I need to do this every time it would be good if i could either disable the “Media Server” option or prioritise “Network Shares”.  Alternatively it would be great if i could add a shortcut or favourite directly to my NAS device.

Does anyone have any ideas/recommendations/hacks that might go some way to fixing this?

Alternatively, I could move the disk from my NAS into a USB caddy and plug it directly into the WD-TV.  Is the prefered method of content for the wd-tv always going to be from a USB device?

Many thanks,
