I recently bought the Roku picture bridge and have it connected to my home theater. It is networked through a dlink wbr1310 to my desktop computer. When I go to the network tab on the Roku menu it displays the ip address of 192.168.0.100, but will not find the server. I have disabled the firewall on my computer, updated the firware version on my router, pinged the roku (sucessful), telneted to the roku (sucessful) etc, etc... Nothing seems to be working. I would appreciate any new ideas.
OK, silly question time.
What firmware version are you running on your HD1K (e.g. 2.0.35, 1.5.18 etc)?
Have you setup "Sharing" for the folders on PC that hosts the data you want?
Have you gone into setup on the HD1K and had it scan for shards?
Do you have any third party applications yet? If so, try to put WeatherSix on a CF card and stick it in the HD1k and launch the app and see if it can pull weather data for Palo Alto (it's default city). THat will let us know if it can see outside or not.
I have my money on not having your folders set to share. You should see a little icon of a hand holding said folders when you have said foldes setup right.
Have you restrored the unit to factory defualts? You might try that if you can't get it to work.
Anyway, your at the right place, we can get you going, we just gotta do it one step at a time.
I agree with Les, the HD1K is very friendly for finding shares.
