Media player not seeing nas when pc switched off

  computerdiv 21:26 09 Aug 2014

I have a Dlink 320L NAS attached to my home network. My set up is talktalk modem connected to 2 belkin homeplugs and to my tplink switch(router). Connected to this is my popcorn hour A100 and Dlink 320L NAS. If i turn on my tv and try to navigate to where my movies are on my popcorn hour without firstly turning my pc on, I cannot access my movies. Why is this? I should be able to see the NAS on my popcorn hour A100 without having to turn on my pc. Is there a setting on the NAS that allows this so i dont have to turn on my pc or do i have to allow access on my router somewhere to do this. Please help as it's annoying.
