I Can't Access My Server With My Roku Box

mroopmroop Posts: 19Members ✭✭

It was working fine yesterday and then it wasn't. I seem to have this issue every few months, but it usually resolves on it's own after rebooting a few times or waiting a couple hours.

Right now my server reads as "Nearby" but it was reading "Remote" earlier. I can access my friend's server out of state under "Shared Library Sections" and I can watch qued YouTube videos, but the "Home Videos" icon does not appear on my Roku and that points to my C:/Downloads folder.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm not a technical person and any issues that I've had getting to my server have always just gone away after a short while. Thanks.

    I can access my server using the Roku with the laptop (server) connected to the wireless router with an ethernet cable.
