I just received my new WD TV Live and, although it can see my uPnP server, it gives the following error message when I try to enter it:
“There was a problem connecting to the network. The device could not connect to the network.”
The thing that I find very odd is that it IS seeing the folders and files. If I click the enter button on the remote really quickly, it’ll go through the directories and I can see thumbnails for photos pop up, but after about 3 seconds, I get the error. The result is similar when I try to access the NAS via a network share.
“There is no media in the current folder.”
It’s true, there are no media files in the root- but there are in the directories within the root. This is not a problem when trying to access my laptop (works fine).
I already tried changing my workgroup name to WORKGROUP and that did not help. The device is hard wired to the router. The uPnP server/network share are through my router (Asus WL500gp V2). The files are stored on a USB hard disk connected to the router. I actually have another media streamer (EGreat m34a) and it works OK with that (OK being a relative term… it is so unreliable which is why I bought this one). There are not really any settings to configure with the UPnP server- it’s on or it’s off…
Any suggestions of things to try?
