    Windows10Pro sharing with Mede8er x1000 - network issues in explorer


    Ive had no problems until a new install recently with the latest Win 10 OS.
    Network is setup.
    I can see my PC in the network explorer.
    I can see the Mede8er player as a device and is accessible from the Win 10 homegroups, however I cannot log on to the Windows PC from they mede8er.

    I prefer the traditional simple folder and file structure. This means I want to use Windows Explorer in the Network environment. The mede8er (media player) does not register as a network device, but is seen as a device and works in hmegroups (this does not help my issue unfortunately)

    I have tried resetting the network on Windows 10, no luck.
    I can ping the mede8er and all 4 responses reply positively.
    I can see the mede8er and Windows PC on the mede8er, however I can not logon to the Windows PC from the mede8er, which I have managed to do fine over the last 5 +years.
    IE Username and Password (the same as I use to log onto the windows machine) which is again historically what I have always done. I just get Login failed.

    I have a hunch that this is something to do with SMB1 being disabled and of course due to the ransomware exploits and other nasties that this has been made vulnerable to, I am guessing that this may be the issue.

    So my question is simple.

    How do I get the Mede8er X1000 to successfully access and see the windows 10 shared folders please?


    So it appears unless I enable SMB1 on the windows system, its not going to work and Iam not convinced this is a secure way forward unless things have been patched up?

    Ive now installed ES explorer on teh firestick and can stream from that (not as convenient but a solution).

    Many thanks
