Media scraping support for NAS devices

It would be great if we could scape content on NAS devices and have it all in one central place.  The manual for this thing makes it sound like this should be working but it does not.

Status: Implemented
This is already supported since the 1.04.12 firmware • Supports media library function for network share folders

Manual states it is supported. So this should not be a new idea or featrure request. This is a bug that needs to be fixed.

I didn't know the device would not scrape until I purchased it and spent 4 hours trying to figure out why it wasn't working. This needs to be fixed. I plan on returning the device tomorrow and getting popcorn hour or other device that supports this feature.

There are no other devices that supports this feature lol.... theres an article on it in WD's KB - it looks like there was a bug or something that made them take it out right before release. It'll be back soon i'm pretty sure.

A WD employee posted on AVS that they're working on the next firmware which should re-enable media scraping over NAS servers.


I can't wait.  This is the one feature I really want to see on my WD TV Live Streaming.

+ to this.

A media library which works with NAS was one of major argument to buy the new WDTV. So please enable the function soon again.

It's time to address this and get it fixed.

I agree, time to get it fixed, what time of media device doesn't have a way to view all your media?
