View Full Version : Roku Photobridge no longer connects to Mac after OSX Tiger security upgrade

Aug 3, 2008, 10:03 PM
I do the MacOS security upgrades as soon as they come out, and around mid-July, I noticed that my Roku Photobridge (aka HD1000) could no longer connect to my Mac. (I hadn't used the Roku in a while at that point, so I'm not sure exactly when the upgrade happened that broke networking.)

The error I get on the Roku is "User/Pass OK but read permission denied". Here's what I know:

* another Mac user on the Roku forum reports the same problem, with roughly the same timing, and he also installed the same security updates

* the Roku has its own account/user on the Mac, and all the permissions look fine (in fact, they're all 644 if you look at them using the command line)

* the Roku uses Windows Sharing; I've confirmed that Windows Sharing is on for its account

* the firewall on the Mac is set to allow Windows Sharing through (I've also experimented with turning the firewall off, and still get the same error message)

* I used the Disk Utilities to fix both permissions and the disk itself, and this didn't solve the problem

Any ideas or help would be gratefully appreciated!

I have the same problem. Can't figure it out either.

I think you're the "other user" I mention up there. I've been discussing it with someone more knowledgeable on the Apple forums in case you want to weigh in:
