You shouldn't have to do anything special at all for this to work on a WHS and it's all configured right from the WHS console.
How about some specifics?
In the WHS Settings (in the console), I have these settings:
1). Media Sharing: Music, Photos, Videos all set to 'On'.
2). Settings for DMS: 'Digital Media Server' = 'Disable' (should this be enabled)?
3). In my Shared Video folder, I have sub-folders (by genre, i.e. 'ACTION', 'DOCUMENTARY', etc.)... Do I also have to share those folders? I assumed that sharing & security settings would get propagated to sub-folders...
I've also noticed that when I access the WHS from the 'Media Library' option, it registers as HOMESERV:1, while when accessing from the 'Network Share' it's called just HOMESERV.
This was also happening when I accessed it from my XBOX360, and selecting HOMESERV never worked...
I'm kinda new to the whole 'home networking' thing, but I previously had the ASUS O!Play, which worked out of the box with no issues. I was hoping the WDTV Live would be as easy...
