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 https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204445).
  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: https://support.apple.com/kb/PH18695

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

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.

i think i had the same. i just shared them via guest (no pass, read only)
