Help on Streaming Films and Media Player recommendation
Posted by: AndyP19 on 04 July 2017
Having transferred my music onto to a QNAP I thought I'd use my old 6TB storage with Logitech Media Server (LMS) to store my collection of DVD's.
Using a three year old WD TV Media Player I streamed the storage into a router (not connected to the internet just to get a local network) then into my Toshiba TV) all seemed OK and running well until recently when I get drop out's every 30 minutes or so. With error on WD TV 'Content Source Not Found' - 'The previously connected source has been discounted...' . I've got the latest firmware and changed the router to eliminate that from the equation. Storage with LMS works on a friends TV with built in Media Player so it points to the WD TV - searches on other forums report this as an issue but no clear solution. Workgroup is same name on LMS and WD TV. Any ideas?
Failing that, any recommendations for a robust Media Player that I can HDMI into TV and hook up to the LMS storage with local wired ethernet?
