I can't seem to access my Windows 8 PC via SMB from my Dune media player directly (or any other media player for that matter) - if I map a specific location on my media player it does work. However, I did not have this problem under Windows 7 - is there a particular setting I have to change? (I know it isn't a sharing). I know in windows 7 I had to uninstall windows live login assistant for it to work properly - is there something along those lines in windows 8?
Although I don't generally stream from my PC as I have a server for that but sometimes I need to access the odd file and would like to have the functionality.
