xmount issue- Need help   

Postby dunkin » Fri Apr 17, 2015 3:23 pm

I am having issue seeing movies from xmounted network drives.
WDTV with: 1.03.01_B-RAD.CC_WDLXTV- with usb ethernet connected.

xmount "//" Movies01 cifs user=guest,iocharset=utf8,rw

When I connect WDTV to tv, the mounted folder is empty. I can successfully telnet to the device and see "mounted -t cifs" drive and can navigate to the mounted usb drive and "ls -l" to list movies.

I am lost and dont know what is going on here. I am new to WDLXTV. Please help! I had this WDTV for a long time and wanted to make better use of this device. Thanks in advance.

Apart from that you got a gen1 (never had one of those): are you working with a net.mounts file located on an USB stick? If you can already see the movies in telnet, I think something goes wrong when creating the "duplicate" mountpoints.

the syntax is wrong. in the net.mounts file it says:
# Example net.mounts file to demonstrate auto-mounting
# of network shares

# Mount a windows file share (must be done by IP address)
# xmount // ShareName cifs
# if your "guest" account is disabled, you must supply username and password
# xmount // ShareName cifs user=username,pass=password

my net.mounts file that worked was this:
xmount // Movies cifs user=Admin,pass=

guest account is disabled and there is no password on the admin account. works fine for 720p content but not 1080p, I had to use NFS for that.

you can type the command in telnet and it will tell you if it worked, or you can add the webserver addon and add them from there, all files required are here;
Code: Select all

WDTV with: 1.03.01_B-RAD.CC_WDLXTV- *wireless* DWA-140
WDTV Live: new, still in the box & unopened
2 X WDTV Live Plus with: 1.05.04_B_WDLXTV.COM_WDLXTV_PLUS- 1 wired, 1 *wireless* DWA-140

Thank you kroetkroet and RevDrew. The following syntax in the net.mounts file on an usb stick worked for me. Now I can navigate on my WDTV and play videos from my ReadyNas 102 shared folder.

xmount // Movies cifs user=guest,pass=

Can I stream youtube videos from my WDLXTV - WD TV HD Gen 1?
