I recently got a Iomega Home Network Media drive that I have on my network that is also connected to my ATV.
It was working great, auto-mounting and I did not have to think about it until a few days ago.
I replaced my Airport Extreme with a Time Capsule and since then (no idea if related), I have had the issue of the NAS drive not staying mounted. It mounts fine via afp, but if I go away from my ATV for awhile and come back, it is no longer mounted and I have to mount and reboot the ATV in order to watch content on the NAS drive.
I tried to create a manual sharepoint and save it, but I got confused about a few items (I watched the screencast, but it did not answer my questions)
I will list everything that might be related to this issue for any feedback you can provide.
ATVFlash and Nito Smart Installer are up to date (as of 3/19/2010)
The Iomega NAS is available as a “guest” login (this was one question I had via the manual sharepoint creation, is the “Guest” login NO authentication?
I found this tutorial and I will follow it to see if it helps, but I am not sure what to do about “guest” login and authentication?
Before I installed the Time Capsule I had a USB going from the Iomega to my ATV as well as the Iomega being on the network, but I found out the USB port on the Iomega is not an transfer point, it is a access point, much like the one on the ATV, so I figure it was best to not have that cable connected?
I now have three saved manual sharepoints that I have created, how do I get rid of them in case they are conflicting?
Thanks very much for any help.
