Infuse refuses to connect to iMac


I had to re-install everything on my iMac after its library got corrupted. That went quite smoothly. Only thing is: I cannot seem to connect my Apple TV 4 to the movie folders on the iMac anymore. Whatever I try, I get the error ‘name and password combination not correct. CLOSE’. (I had to create a new user on the iMac, but on the computer, this runs okay. To connect Infuse on the Apple TV with the iMac I tried every possible login name and password, including the old ones of course).
The Apple TV does see the iMac though; I can open iTunes and Computers to play the movies and music that are parked there.

Finally, I uninstalled and re-installed Infusie Pro. To no avail… :frowning:
I do hope you can help me out (so I can proceed with the next problem: re-connecting the printer…)

Thanks for your help!

There are a few things to check.

SMB is enabled on your Mac (more info here
At least one user is selected under ‘Windows File Sharing’ (as shown under ‘Advanced Options’ in the link above).
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:

It was the missing SMB-link. Thanks a lot, problem solved!
