Onkyo TX-NR717 Home Media from password share

Post  drymsza on Wed Dec 05, 2012 5:51 pm

The manual advises to create user account without password in order to use Home Media to play from a share. Having accounts without passwords is rather unacceptable from the security point of view. I'm using Windows 7 machine and I can see it in the HomeMedia screeen, as soon as I select it I get "authentication failed". There is no popup to enter user name or password. How can I connect to a password protected share?

Home Media is for use of Apple/ Samba servers and doesn't connect using Windows 7 (Windows Media Player). DLNA is compatible with Windows 7/ Windows Media Player 12. This may be the reasoning why you are no table to utilize Home Media.

Exactly the opposite problem

For me the DLNA will not work. I'm using Win 7 computers/WMP 12 and get nothing but "No Server" when trying to use DLNA. If i use Home Media the 515 recognizes the servers. If i disable DHCP in the Network setup I can stream music to the 515 using Home Media (but not DLNA).
