    Win 8 can not automatically see PVR


    Have Divco PVR with wifi, and win 8 cannot access it easily, my old win 7 laptop can find it all the time no problems, and can see the win 8 laptop and the win 8 can see the win 7 laptop. Originally the win 8 machine could only ping the PVR using the IP address, but ping by name fails. I followed the advice about changing Network Security LAN Manager authentication level etc. plus in Ethernet properties I un-ticked Microsoft LLDP Protocol Driver to make it the same as win 7. After all these I managed to get it to see the PVR when I typed in the IP address in the address bar in explorer at the Network page. I then mapped the folder, which is working, but this is a rather clunky solution. Question why can't win 8 just find the PVR like win 7.

    Thank you

It's a temptation to install and explore 8.1, but siding on the side of caution and prefer to delay the upgrade. The 8.1 upgrade is NOT automatic, is it? I would like to wait, maybe a month, for all the kinks and bugs to get worked out of 8.1 before it's installed on my PC. Using a...
