Hello,

Just wondering if anyone would have a 'simple' solution for what we need!

We have a WD TV Live unit which is a G2 (WDBAAP0000NBK-01) that has the latest WD firmware installed that we are using for digital signage in our building that displays MPEG4's continuously. We can connect to the unit over the network no problem and add and remove files as necessary.

But . . . . when you add extra files the player does NOT pick them up on the loop! Any files removed from the storage device have no effect on the looping videos, as they are not found it carries on regardless.

We have seen lots of different software and code flying around which can be quite confusing!. Is there any straight forward solution for us that we can use so when we add new files to the storage device it will pick them up automatically?

We are not too interested in have the remote display on a PC etc we just need to know that when we add extra videos we can rest easy that they will be picked up and play along with the rest without any users manual intervention.

We would appreciate any help with this and thanks in advance.
