I´m using a MBP with LION (10.7.2), a MB with Leopard (10.5.8) and a TimeCapsule on my aTV2 (using aTV Flash (black) Version 1.0)
I shared my folders as stated in your note (“Note: If streaming from a Mac or PC be sure to first Enable File Sharing.”)
There is no trouble with the TC and the MB (Leopard) but aTV can’t find any files and folders on my MBP. ATV shows my MBP as a share but I can’t get a connection. I always get the error: “AFP connection failed: unreachable network or incorrect login/password”
If you view the share settings, does the Server field contain a number (IP address) or a name (My-MacBook.local)?
In 1.0 we started using DNS names instead of the IP address as the DNS names change much less often. If you’re using an IP address, your best option may be to remove that share, and setup a new one as this will use the DNS name instead.
I have the exact same problem. If I log in on my iMac with my MBP it works, but when I try to login on my iMac through the Media Player with exact the same DNS name, user and pass it gives the error AFP connection failed…
Mine too has been working fine for weeks and then suddenly without any changes in the network or Macbook OSX Lion 10.7.2 setup has begun to give me the “AFP connection failed: unreachable network or incorrect login/password” error repeatedly. I have updated everything, restarted everything, tried everything I know of. I’m not very good at this stuff so if there is a may to fix it please tell me step by step.
