Cannot log onto Popcorn Hour (does not recognize username and password)

Cannot log onto Popcorn Hour (does not recognize username and password)
This is driving me crazy. I know that the username is "nmt" and the password is "1234" but this is not working. My pch a-100 shows up on my network, but i cannot log onto it with the default username and password. I have the latest firmware, but still does not work! I have accessed it many times before, as I have had the popcorn hour for about a year now. But all of a sudden, I have not been able to access it. I'm trying to access it with a macbook pro by the way. Can someone help me??

RE: Cannot log onto Popcorn Hour (does not recognize username and password)
access with what?
telnet?

If so, always re-install telnet after a firmware update.

RE: Cannot log onto Popcorn Hour (does not recognize username and password)
Sorry, but I'm not that knowledgeable about network protocols or LAN connections. All I know is that my popcorn hour is connected to my router, the IP address shows up as 192.168.X.XXX, and I'm trying to log onto the server with smb://192.168.X.XXX, and it asks for my username and password, which I type in as nmt and 1234, but it says it is incorrect. I have no idea what is going on, any suggestions?

No need to repeat twice what I wrote -- not even once. Try using the "New reply" instead Smile

If you don't know about telnet because you were never using it, then let's drop that from the discussion.

As for SMB, the user and password is still the same unless you changed the password on your Popcorn unit (PCH).
Go back to the PCH and check your network settings to make sure things did not get changed.
Look for PCH name, wired IP or manual IP, workgroup etc.

I think the PCH was changed because went in and tried to change the password and it said that it can't recognize because the password is incorrect. I guess the only way to solve this is to reset everything to the factory setting? I guess I will lose all my files...

Resetting to the factory settings does not mean erasing your files.

It just means the settings in the menus are returned to original.

RE: Cannot log onto Popcorn Hour (does not recognize username and password)
I thought that resetting the factory settings would erase all the data? So how can I reset the settings, such as the username and original password without deleting all my movie files? Sorry for asking all these questions by the way...

Where did you read all your data would be erased?
