I hope you can spare some of your time to help me out here.
I've downloaded the Boxee setup for Windows and I want to share my media with other computers on our network.
I just can't really seem to get it to work.
I'm running Windows 7, with an external harddrive attached where all my media is stored.
I've managed to connect another computer to the same network and this one can now access my own computer and view it's shared files.
I've shared the external harddrive so computer 2 can look through and play those files without too much trouble.
The plan is that computer 2 will be connected to my tv, so I can view my media on the tv while using computer 2 to access the files.
I've installed the Boxee software on both computers. My own works just fine as the files are local.
On computer 2 I can find the files, but when I try to add them as media in the Boxee settings it says 'Disconnected' after a few seconds of scanning.
If you guys know of a solution to this problem then that would be great.
But what I'd really like to know is how you guys would have done it to begin with...
How would you guys set up a Boxee system, where all the media is stored on one external harddrive connected to one of the computers and have all other computers on the network have unhindered access to those files?
Hope you can help
