So, I have a 2TB HDD connected to one of the USB 3.0 ports on my Sony Android Smart-TV. Now, I do not want to constantly disconnect and reconnect the HDD to put files on it.
What I want: use my tv as a server, so that I can put files on it from several devices. And yes, I am aware that I can use my laptop as a SMB / FTP server, but I also want to upload from my phone etc.
What I already tried:
- ES File Explorer (Pro), to share it over FTP, but for some reason I do not have write access to the HDD and I cannot find an option to enable this?
- FTP Server for Android TV, I kind of have the same issue with it, even tho it says I have write access.
- Samba share for Android, my TV is not rooted so I cannot use this.
Hope someone has a sollution or has encountered the same. Hope this is enough info for now!
