PBO can't see XP share..
I just bought a Box Office and I can't seem to get it to see shared drives on my XP/Vista machines. Any ideas.
My network is laid out like this:
Router A provides DNS + Wireless upstairs
Switch B is hard connected to A and provides access to the PBO + other equipment down stairs.
Router C provides Wireless downstairs and is hard wired to B
The XP machine is hardwired to B.
Using the included software, I can find my PBO.
My PBO sees my Windows 7 machine connected to A but nothing else
If pretty useless if I can't get it to find my XP media server.
Solved. Windows Firewall for the fail! Once I turned it off, I could see the shares (and everything else).
The UI is barely passable. Between the key lag and the kind of poor handling of machines/folders/files it's not simple to use. At the very least, there should be a way to assign a shortcut to a folder and have that shortcut appear in the main menu. It really stinks to have to go..NET, then NET NEIGHBOR, then my machine, then find the drive since it shows all available to the guest account including the likes of C$ and D$. Ugly.
WMV support is sketchy at best. Especially Windows Media Video 9.
I'm sure there will be more as I play with it.
