I have recently bought a 2TB Zyxel NSA310 NAS - primarily so I can stream films to my Western Digital WD TV Live device

Although this works ok for streaming films, I have an issue that it stops some other software called Playon to work on the WD TV Live device. This runs on custom firmware WDLXTV

Normally on the WD TV Live it just picks up any local DLNA devices, ie should pick up both NSA310 and PlayonTV (Which runs from my Windows 7 PC via the LAN) so that I have the choice to view films from either source.

I have noticed that when the NSA310 is turned on, Playon is not visible on the WD TV. ONLY the NSA310 is visible from the menu

When I shutdown the NSA-310 NAS, Playon becomes visible - it is only one or the other, not both.

I thought it might be the software Media Server that runs on the NSA310, so I have turned this (and ALL packages etc) off - no difference

Oddly, and importantly I can still access Playon on my Android phone (connected to my LAN via WiFi) when the NSA310 is on so it would appear NOT to be Playon at fault as it still runs - the common factor here seems to be the WD TV Live itself?

Does anyone have any ideas please? (Its not a simple one really!)
