I have a Lubuntu desktop and a Samsung UN50RU7100FXZA SmartTV, both connected to the same local network (WiFi router).
The SmartTV has an external HDD connected to it via USB to play movies directly off of the HDD. This works fine, but currently the only method I have of adding movies to the HDD is by disconnecting it from the TV and physically moving it to the computer, copying the files, then moving it back to the TV.
Is there some way to avoid having to physically disconnect/reconnect it? Preferably by having the SmartTV share the HDD's contents with the Linux desktop (so I can manipulate the files using the computer)?
