RE: windows 8 can't share to popcorn hour anymore
No problem for me with Windows 8.

First question is did you use W7? If yes then all I did to get W8 working was to follow the instructions on the WIKI for W7 and set the same in W8 Network Sharing Centre:
http://www.networkedmediatank.com/wiki/i...h_Windows7

When you Login to W8 you must not use the new method of logging in via email. you must create and login by a Local Account.

If you did not use W7 then you have to remember that homegroups and libraries mean nothing to SMB sharing. Neither does Windows Media Sharing. Forget them and simply create shared folders and follow the guides for setting permissions on the shared folders, user accounts, guest account, etc.

RE: windows 8 can't share to popcorn hour anymore
Hey guys, same problem here, can't share to my A200 from Windows 8 pro anymore.

Followed all the guides posted, changed to LAN logon into win8, guest enabled, all networking is on and static ip set-up. Even tried turning off SMB2 in powershell. Nothing, still can't see my shares. My other win7 machine can see my win8 files just fine and my a200 can see my win7 shares w/o a problem as well. A200 to Win8 comes up empty though.

Tried Hanewin NFS, set-up as explained at the link above, my a200 can see the folders/files, I can browse through them, but if I try to play, it gives me an error that "file couldn't be played".

Any solutions out there?
Does the latest a400 interface better with win8, or should I just build an HTPC already and forget all the headache?

Thanks!

RE: windows 8 can't share to popcorn hour anymore
All you have to do to enable guest access from your Popcorn Hour to your Windows 8 machine is the following (may also work with XP, Vista, 7 and 2012). You should not have to mess with SMB protocol versions or anything like that.

This is what i did on a default installation of Windows 8 Pro:

1. Make sure file and printer sharing is turned on for your current network.
2. Give "Everyone" Full Control permissions on share (Folder Properties > Sharing > Advanced Sharing... > Permissions).
3. Give "Guest" Read & Execute, List folder contents and Read access on filesystem folder (Folder Properties > Security > Edit... > Add...).
4. Enable Guest account in computer management (Computer Management > System Tools > Local Users and Groups > Users).
