    My Qnap TS 410 NAS is not showing in the network.
    I have 3 computers plus the Qnap but only one shows up and that doesn't let me in though it does have a shared drive
    All three PCs are on WORKGROUP
    Not sure about the Qnap as I can't see where to check that.
    I can access the three pcs via logmein remote software. all have usernames and passwords.
    Qnap has "allow all connections" in the security
    All have static IPs
    Could anyone advise on some basic checks or reasons why qnap and 2 pcs are not showing and one pc doesnt show any drives ?

    Firewall? Are they on the same subnet as the HDR?

    If they are open to the network, there is no other reason to why they would not be visible.
    Can the PCs see each other? I'm guessing not..

    Also, make sure you have WMP installed and set to share your media correctly or whichever streamer you are using. Network shares/drives are not the way it works - it needs a streamer like WMP or Serviio or TVersity etc although I'm sure you've already got this setup...?

    Hi PCSs are on the same network and can see each other.
    only using windows firewall

    can you open the folders and play the files on different pc's ( ie files on pc1 can be used on pc2)

    Ah this might be it.
    I also have an HDX media player (popcorn) which I currently use(am trying the Humax to see if I no longer need the HDX)
    I believe the HDX has its own streamer.
    Its the Qnap I want to see mostly, as that is a NAS doesnt it have its own streamer?

    I dont know anything about the Qnap, but a quick google search told me:
    .. which the HDR doesnt do as far as i'm aware..

    To get the Humax to see the QNAP NAS you need to configure the media server (normally twonkymedia server on a QNAP)

    Thanks everybody, I've now enabled twonkymedia on the Qnap
    It shows up now but it still doesn't let me in.
    probably something in the twonky config , I'm looking into it
