Trying wireless and wired pc
I'm still having this issue. Just an update though. Some things I have tried:I enabled UPNP on my router.
I won't explain this because it is widely different on each router and I use DD-WRT for my firmware. Also, I don't know if this helped because nothing kicked in until I did my next step.I got the device to see my shares by turning off my windows firewall
. I swear I turned that off, but I just reinstalled a few months back and that could have been it.
hit the windows button and type firewall.
Launch "Windows Firewall with Advanced Security"
Once the application has loaded make sure all three (domain, private, and public) are disabled.(side note about disabling all this, I do not have a labtop, I don't connect to outside networks, I'm not worried about it, and I'm behind the firewall on my router. You may want to just disable Private Profile.. However I don't know if just will work)
To disable them just click windows firewall properties and make sure firewall state on each tab (domain, private, and public) to off and click OK.
Once I disabled the firewall my PS3 once again started to recognize the PS3 media player as soon as I turned it on, and so did the WD TV Live. Yay!
Also, I followed directions from guardianali to get my network shares to access without a password. It worked. However sometimes the network share disapears and my PS3 Media server is there.. wtf.. uhg...
Setup: Compy wireless, WD TV Live wired
Outcome: High quality stuff lags but the device doesn't kill over. (this probably has to do with the router being a G router) I watch the transfer rate and it just suddenly drops at certain points. Maybe because it can't handle the frames and it knows it.. I don't know yet.. testing more of this soon!
Setup: Compy wired, WD TV wired
Outcome: High quality stuff murders WD TV connection.. or it just dies randomly.. I'm not really sure which at this moment.. I'm doing more research on this.

Apparently Windows 7 sharing when set to everyone, is not truely everyone. Annoymous clients dont get access. You have to do some registry magic to make it work but this worked!
Configure the folder you want to share:
1. Select the folder (NOT drive)
2. Right-click and choose 'Share' from the menu
3. From the drop-down box select the Everyone (All users in this list) account, making sure permissions are set to 'Reader'
4. Click the buttons Add, Share and Done.
Here are some further registry 'tweaks'
WARNING: This requires editing your PC's registry which, if edited incorrectly, can cause Windows systems to become unstable and unusable. So, follow the instructions below at your own risk. - we are not responsible for any damage caused by following these steps.
1. Navigate to the following location in the registry editor.
2. On the right side, double-click on 'everyoneincludesanonymous' and change the 'Value data' from '0' to '1'
3. Double-click on 'NoLmHash' and change the 'Value data' from '1' to '0'
4. Navigate to the following location in the registry editor:
5. Double-click on 'restrictnullsessaccess' and change the 'Value data' from '1' to '0'
6. Close the registry editor and restart PC.
After I did this, just go to Video -> Network shares -> chose ur pc and viola...all the folders u set to share is now there!
Hope this helps to others....
