I realise this has been asked a million times but i am no further forward. I have 2 of the latest WDTV boxes, bought in November 2015. The downstairs one is plugged in through LAN into the back of my bt hub 5. The one upstairs is plugged in to a tp-link powerline adapter. I added the network shares on both systems to find all the content on my WD Mycloud (plugged in through gig ethernet)  The WDTV upstairs manages to keep all the shared including all the relevent info for video files (posters,plot artwork etc) but the one downstairs always loses the same shares. I can go into the menu and the share will be missing from the manager section. I try not to use my pc because its old and crap but i did run a LAN scanner to determine the master browser and it said that the nas drive and the hub 5 were both master browsers. Im lost please help!!

You might try checking which device is issuing addresses.  At first glance a possible address conflict.  Try using fixed IPs on devices such as NAS.
Just a thought.
