I can navigate to NETFLIX folder with WDTV Live and then it says UNABLE TO CONNECT or in case of CNN for example FOLDER IS EMPTY.

test on Netflix in Playon settings in computer is OK.

Every other things on WDTV Live works:

- its features, to get on YouTube and play videos from attached storage
- I can access files from computer (where PlayOn is serving) on USB attached storage to WDTV Live, play videos, copy files etc.
- WDTV Live and computer are on the same router
- I have an account set with Netflix, streaming videos through Silverlight to computer is fine.

computer (laptop) is Core2Duo, Vista Home Basic.
Thanks for any help

It was Avast free antivirus v.4.8, was blocking server, upgraded to latest Avast free 5.0.377 and its working now.

Actualy, there was another problem at the same time, user accounts or so, had to start PlayOn server in User Run mode (click START in PlayOn settings  while pressing Ctrl).
