I have a Samsung TV UE43TU7175U. It's connected to a router by cable, and to an external hard drive with the TV's USB port. Internet access from the TV works fine, and it can play videos on the drive. But how can I share the hard drive and make it accessible over the network?
Scanning the network from my PC (Win10 Home) finds the TV, and it shows up in the router settings. But I can't find the USB drive or any way to share it from the TV.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thanks, that sounds like a better idea.
The router doesn't have a USB port, but I connected the drive to a separate NAS: a Raspberry Pi running openmediavault. Shared the drive with "Only guests" access. I can read/write to the drive from my PC, but no luck from the TV. I tried Source -> Remote Access -> Connect to remote computer and entered the local IP for the NAS. Am I on the right track?
