Can't get sharing to work Mac and Infuse 5 on Apple TV 4

SMB File sharing is on for my MAC. Infuse can see my MAC, but when I enter my username and password it spins on “checking connection”. Google search has not produced an answer.

There are a few things to check.

  1. SMB is enabled on your Mac (more info here
  2. At least one user is selected under 'Windows File Sharing' (as shown under 'Advanced Options' in the link above).
  3. Selected username and password are being entered in Infuse.

Note: iCloud username/password cannot be used. If you're using an iCloud ID to log in to your Mac, you will need to set up a new 'Sharing Only' user as described here:

I have the same problem, and nothing works!((

Please help!!

Can you provide a bit more info like what Mac OS, What ATV OS, what version of infuse? Are you trying to connect to a NAS also?

Have you gone through the steps that James linked to above and have you read the Support Guide here? Streaming From a Mac, PC, or NAS – Firecore Support

I did all this. Sorry i don’t know what is NAS.

macOS sierra 10.12.6
tvOS 11.2.6
Infuse 5

make sure your network (router) allows the connection.
