Connection issues since upgrading clients to Windows 10

Post by lisag » Fri Feb 05, 2016 10:09 pm

I have Argus TV 2.3 installed on a separate Windows 8.1 server.

I then have 4 clients running MediaPortal with the Argus TV plug in.

I recently upgraded 2 of the clients from Windows 7 to Windows 10 and encountered a home network connection issue.

What happens is that it takes 3 or 4 minutes on first boot for the server share to be available by name (eg \\server)
I have been troubleshooting this for days now and can't fix it, but the workaround is to assign the server a static ip address,
And change all the network paths on the clients from \\server to \\
This works for everything EXCEPT the Argus TV plug in, if I go to play a recorded TV file it remains unavailable for 3 or 4 minutes, even though I have changed the server name from \\server to \\
I did try changing the streaming method to RTSP, but that gives me stuttering audio.

Any ideas how I can get Argus to ignore the \\server name and just use the IP address?
Or is there anything else I can try to avoid the 3 to 4 minute wait?

Many thanks
