WDTV will not see NAS after power failure

HELP! My WDTV will not see my DS212j NAS server after a power failure

I have reset and rebooted changed IP from auto to manual and my NAS server is working as a media server as i can see it from my PS3.

Anyone have any ideas why suddenly it will not see the NAS??

First of all make sure the Nas can be seen on your pc using the Diskstation Assistant.

Then make sure that the nas ip address is in the WDTV

OK so in settings you have added the NAS and are still getting no storage present?
If so can you get into the files on your NAS and see if you can delete the .wdtv file (the full stop . is correct as it is a hidden file) you need to get your PC to show hidden files.
This has worked for me before, however I do not use a NAS anymore.

There aren't any settings to add the NAS or input the IP Address of the NAS Server. The only way i can add it is within video > select content source > media server

Try network server on WDTV instead of media server you should be able to browse the NAS folders directly. Synologys media server (DLNA) is known to behave weirdly with auto discovery, the DLNA server configuration can become corrupted.

There is a process to reset the DLNA server if you look over on Synology forums but it involves a some technical work, you could contact synology tech support and ask for their help or switch to another media server on the NAS like Serviio for instance.
