I have tried both SAMBA (I am however uncertain which ID and Password to use here??) and NFS, however, the Tvix only gives me the following error message "Failed to connect the Network Disk!".
My laptops (one is XP and one is Vista) sometime also shows the following error message "Authentication is failed!!! Firts please connect tvix into pc with USB to authenticate". Howver, when I connect the laptops to the Tvix 6600 with USB - the Tvix only displays "connected to Computer" on the Tv Screen and I am not able to make any adjustments on the Tvix. Vista and XP is also not able to identify Tvix when connected through USB (how to solve this? Are there any drivers?).
I have downloaded the latest public firmware 1.8.7 and the latest version of netshare. I have turned my firewall in Windows off and made an exception for netshare. I want to use my Tvix wireless.
What to do??
FYI the latest firmware has nice features you might want. It allows you to "browse" the shares, so you don't need to type / input any share names.
If you can ping the share then it means you have connectivity, but probably need to get the sharing correct.
If you use netshare you should not need to touch your firewall at all. Just simply install netshare and share folders.
The trick is how TViX uses the NFS shares which is not intuitive and they use "tvixhd1-4" as the share names irrespective of what the actual folder is called on your PC.
Streaming video from PC to Tvix - Using NFS
on PC : Netshare
1. Install "Netshare 2.12" on your PC and select folder to share.
2. Select a share e.g. 1st share is c:\movies (this is called tvixhd1 on TVix)
(2nd share is called tvixhd2 etc)
2a. On Tvix - FW 1.8.7.
select Setup / Network, Under Network disk 1 : select NFS. The 1st share name is "tvixhd1", select NFS, and add ip of PC with Share.
2b. On TVix - FW 1.9.1.b5
select Setup / Network, Under Network disk 1 : select NFS and the device will browse for the shares. Select "tvixhd1/" as the 1st share (which is actually c:\movies on your PC)
(Note: the PC share name doesn't have to be called tvixhd1, what's important is the sequence. 1st share = tvixhd1 etc)
If it doesn't connect. Restart NFSshare on PC and reconnect the TVix to the network by DHCP IP discovery and that should sync up the network shares.
Hope this helps.
