    Connecting to WD TV Live

    Hi all,

    I've trawled the forums to find an answer for my question but I am none the wiser after a few hours looking.

    I have a WD TV Live which is wired directly into my wireless cable router.

    I am using Ubuntu 12.10 on my laptop and I connect wirelessly to the internet.

    Below is a screenshot of the arp -n from my laptop:

    Address HWtype HWaddress Flags Mask Iface (incomplete) wlan0 ether d0:e5:4d:bc:d5:3d C wlan0 ether c4:3d:c7:44:f6:d0 C wlan0 (incomplete) wlan0 (incomplete) wlan0 ether 90:21:55:b2:c9:9f C wlan0 ether 00:23:4d:82:f2:25 C wlan0

    Can anyone tell me how I can share files from my laptop over the Wifi onto my WD Tv Live?

    I hope someone can help.

    You need to set up Samba on your laptop to share the required folders.

    Just right-click on the folder you want to share and select Properties > Sharing and then tick the required boxes.

    When this is done you can use the menus on the WD Live to point it to your shared folder.
