    For some reason I cannot get my folders on my drive to be seen by Skifta although all are set to ebe shared etc.

    Is there an alternative iOS app to Skifta which will push media from my Windows 7 PC to the XB1?

    I've not tried since the update, but I think they all will have that problem. My impression is it was the XB1 doing that?

    I have tried Skifta but for some reason the X1 never appears. It picks up my Netbook and NAS but not the Xbox.
    Am I doing something wrong ?
    I am using a HTC One, any other android apps good to try ?
