LG NAS COMPATINILITY WITH SAMSUNG FREESAT VIEWER

by alisdairjohnston / December 10, 2011 1:03 AM PST

I may have posted this in the wrong forum - it is my first post on CNET. I have recently bought an LG NAS (N1T1) and a SAMSUNG SMT S7800 freesat box. The NAS works well on my home network (using Windows 7 Starter), but when the Samsung box is plugged into the network via the RJ45 jack at the rear, it will see the network (ie, it is visible on the screen) but only down to the degree of a symbol. It will not allow me to browse the network - frustrating, as I was hoping to use this method of getting my DVD collection (most of which is on the NAS) onto the TV. The TV is also an LG - but does not have a network connection at the back. The question is - do I have to do something in the LG NAS setup to make the network readable. Or could the problem be with the Windows 7 Starter edition (pretty basic support to networking , as I have experienced). I am not particularly technical, so please be gentle!

As I read all the pages, after I hit over a dozen I keep reading that it reads such from a PC, not a NAS. If the PC is not showing up it could be 7 Starter or a firewall or some other dozen things. You may have to have a pro come in and set it up.

Thanks for that - the instruction book does say that it will connect to a home network. Also, I have tried attaching a PC directly to the Sat decoder with no success. I don't know enough about the limitations of windows 7 Starter to know if this is likely to be the issue.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
