    Seeing shared folders on our server.

    Having only recently bought my tablet, I am very new to this game. I have set it up, all the usual blurb, I have set up the network and the like, but no matter what I have done I can see the WHS, but cannot connect to it to see all the shared folders. We have several guests staying with us over the past couple of months with various tablets and the previous version of Android seems to connect, stream, copy and the like without a problem, but I can't.

    Any ideas or suggestions welcome. We have a dell poweredge server, running Home server 2003, there is a secure area that I don't need to see on the tablet, but the music and videos are public and should be open to all on the network!

    I can sometimes see my server through the Clear-fi apply that came with my A500, but it's unreliable and unpredictable.

    You say you are using ES to viewthe shares, and then mention streaming video, what video player app are you using? and are you noticing occasional freezing of the video while streaming?

    I'm using ES with MX player to stream to my tablet, but it drives me nuts, the video freezes for about 2 seconds every few minutes, I have to copy the file over to be able to watch it properly.

    I use the es player
    It does not do well with unprocessed hidef but that does not work local either
    Hidef video has to be processed prior to playing on the tablet
