Throw your Sony Media Player against the nearest wall!
Okay it's probably just me, but...
Having spent the weekend trying to get the Sony SMP-N100 Media Streamer to find my WD Mybookworld NAS, I've given up in despair!
The Sony (wirelessly) communicates fine with the router (Orange Livebox) and my laptop (Sony Vaio/Vista), so downloading/streaming content from either the web or the laptop isn't the issue. The WD Mybookworld is plugged into the router: The laptop sees it fine, and it's apparently the network server of choice according to Sony's own website (so much so that they actually sell it themselves).
So why can't the Sony Media Player see the thing, far less find any of the files on it - accepting of course that once it does find the server and sees the media on it, it's unlikely to be able to play any of the formats there. There's lots of web comment about how the DLNA implementation appears to be so bad that it won't actually play many of the file formats it's supposed to... but never mind that... I just want the Sony to be able to see the server for now (it's supposedly just as bad with the Sony 370 and 570 Blu-ray players...).
All the software/firmware has been updated today (Sony, Livebox and WD Mybookworld), and all the permissions have been fiddled with... but to no avail. Any clues, ideas, thoughts as to what I may be doing wrong? Or is it that I just have to wait for Sony to sort out their software issues as many others on the web seem to think?
