TwonkyServer cannot see Samsung SMart TV Series 6

Post by Hurleysmiths » Tue Aug 23, 2016 3:02 am

Firstly, I am a novice at all this. I just bought a WD My Cloud and it has connected to my network generally without a problem.

The problem is my Samsung Smart TV Series 6 is not finding it when I press Source. I have enabled media sharing in the Dashboard. I have also checked the TwonkyServer page. I think the problem may be that my TVs IP address is not listed as a Media Receiver on the TwonkyServer page.

I have searched the forums but cannot find a solution. I saw a reference to an AllShare app but cannot seems to find this on the Samsung TV itself. I do not want to have to use a mobile app to beam to the TV. I would rather be simply able to press Source on the TV remote and select WDMYCLOUD.

Can anyone help? Please remember that I am a novice and may need an 'Idiot's Guide' to fixing this!
