I have recently bought a technisat hdfs receiver,have also connected to my network via usb wlan adaptor,have configured files to be shared,this worked ok,but next day i tried to access movies,and there was nothing,states "no volume",wlan is still working ok,my router is showing up in the network settings on the receiver,and the hdfs box is showing up in my router,and i can access bbc iplayer,however the device is not showing up in my network,and cant access any media files at all,i rang technisat support who advised resetting the receiver,i did this but to no avail,can anyone suggest anything that might help:lease:
Thank you.

If you are running Windows 7 - then this is a known problem - Microsoft removed a depreciated method of supporting shares. It is down to Technisat to update their firmware.
