Can't view photos or video on my Vizio TV via Onkyo reciver

Post by greenstarfish03 » Thu Jan 05, 2012 5:06 am

Hello,

I'm using a WD my book live 2 w/ Twonky 5.1.9 on it to stream media. I have video, pics, and music set in the software to stream, but when I look on the tv I see a red x next to the video and pics folders. Music works fine. Everything runs through my Onkyo TX NR709 receiver. So I'm using the Onkyo display on the TV. I thought that if I go the config page and fix the media receivers page that may help, but I'm not sure how to set that page. I found the Onkyo and its defined as a windows media player now. What should I set that too? I don't see an Onkyo receiver in the drop down.

Any thoughts are appreciated.

Thanks

Try Generic player first.

I changed it to generic player and saved the settings. When I check the TV I still have the red x next to the photo and video folders, but music is fine. Would I need to do anything else other then click save after making the change?

Sorry for the delay. Can you access your photo and video folders from the Server media browser page?
