Hi Guys I just got a ATV 1st gen with Boxee\XBMC installed and ready to go. I can use Boxee to get on the internet etc. Before I continue I'll spec out my network layout,
BTHOME HUB (internet)
Plug Network adapter
Apple tv then is connected to the other plug network adapter and thus can use the internet and see my PC.
Upon attempting to stream content from the shared folders on my PC I enter network source and see.
BTHOME HUB (Samba)
If I select my "MYPCNAME" (Samba) which is shared I get prompted to enter a user name and password however I don't use a user name and password for ANYTHING on my network so I am not sure what it wants me to enter! I don't even use a user to log onto my PC at start-up.
If I use a UPNP server like PS3 media streamer the Boxee can see that to veiw individual files however it can't scrape from it using it as a source folder as it gets disconnected for some reason as soon as it tries to scan it.
Can someone please help!!!
