Re: [WIN8] Windows 8 Multimedia Device Issue

said by QuaffAPint:

The WDTVLive has a web interface. Just wondering whether you could access that from the W8 PC. My WDLive also shows up in my Device Manager, thats why I asked.

Do any other devices show up in you device list?

No, not on the Windows 8 PC. On the Windows 7 PC, I have a section in device manager that says digital media devices, then inside that it says digital media device. Then in system devices, the WDTVLIVE shows up there.

Is that where you see it?

On the Windows 8 PC, in the devices section, I have all local devices listed (keyboard, mouse, speakers). In the Multimedia devices section, I have all of the PCs in the homegroup there.

Still not sure where to access the WDTV web interface. I type in the IP in the browser on either PC and don't get anything.

This is so frustrating. It should be easy.
