After installing todays update i get prompted to give username and password to get files from my pc. I have no password set on the pc to read or write files. How to get rid of this ? I have tried to reinstall the network, both wired and wireless with no result.
When using my raspberry there is no need for password and all works OK.
I must say I am rather disappointed with my new vero 2 and the difference with my raspberry 2 is not that significant that motivate the cost. Little better wireless and ability to watch 265 viedeofiles.
I am sorry to hear that. You should find the Vero 2 significantly faster than the Pi. H265 video decoding is important to some people, and will become more relevant as more videos are encoded in the format. We also have an imminent Android release which will let you use Apps like Netflix on your device.
God knows I have tried!
As I have no password on my windows PC , and I don´t want it, how to do then?
I have used smb for years on my raspberry´s and now vero2 with no problem.
Meanwhile I have used UPnP , but it is a bad solution.
Now I have put my vero 2 on the shelf awaiting a fix for the password problem and am sticking to my old raspberry Pi2 which is not upgraded with the latest problem maker.
Since I´m not a specialist on windows network installation, and God knows I have tried to get the required password in order without success, it would be a good help to get a step by step instruction how to do, so I could use my new Vero2 with the latest updates.
