I have followed and read numerous threads about configuring SMB to be compatible with the Boxee Box, and have done everything like setting up share permissions, uninstalling Windows live assistant thing, and a couple of other more complex setting changes.
Boxee won't find my computer in its scan. SO I manually entered my computer's hostname, browsed the resulting folders, and added them as sources.
Problem: All the folders that I added as shares show up as "disconnected" and Boxee won't/can't scan them for content.
Complication: I can access and play all the content on my supposedly "disconnected" shared folders by selecting the files themselves through Files/Local Media Folders, where the shares do show up and are 100% accessible. So while my files are accessible from the Box, they won't scan and so I don't have a nice looking library like I had hoped, only another file tree.
