I’ve browsed all forums and haven’t found any answer to basic issue.
My WDTV doesn’t see ANY computers in a local workgroup. If I want to view network share content, network share icon is greyed.
The interesting thing is WDTV sees exactly the same computers as media servers => no connectivity issue
Yes, all computers are in the same workgroup named WORKGROUP,
Yes, I’ve done mastre browser excercise - master browser in on eTrayz NAS as it always was
Yes - it doesn’t see yet another NAS in my network - Popcorn-hour A-110
Yes - it was working two years without ANY issue, it was discovering all computers (including NAS and Popcorn) within few seconds
It stopped working this month without any obvious reason. Nothing has changed in my network.
Popcorn can still see network shares on NAS,
Windows computers can still see netwrok shares on popcorn and on NAS,
“net view” command on windows shows wdtvlivehub in correct workgroup.
Any comment from WD on that?
Why it is not possible to add option to map network shares manually and don’t rely on discovery?
Is it so difficult to add one textbox in \ipaddress\sharename format?
P.S. Don’t tell me to edit browser settings - I have Linux based NASes - eTrays and Popcorn - with factory installed CIFS daemons. There’s no way to alter registry entries or whatever. Windows computers are used only occasionally.
And again - It WAS working two years without any problem.
