SHEEP: take a look at this and see if any of it applies. I've realized I'm network dumb!
I did those things in a previous guide. I did however go to the WDTV live in the media streaming options and allow full access (not default). Waiting to try that.

Have you solved this yet?

I have 3 of these WD Live Media Players (love them) and I have had this same problem twice, both times after performing a fresh install of my windows media server.

First time was fix by applying a new Firmware update that came out a week after I had the problem.
Second time was fixed by making sure I had the correct settings on my server. Note, I do not use the "media server" option, rather I chose the "Windows Network Share" and navigated to my PC.
You need to give it a minute sometimes for the list of window shares to populate fully.
Turning on "Network Discovery" and sharing your desired media folders with everyone should suffice.
