Hi Penbex,

Have the Otek 510 with LL v1.42 installed. Can't seem to access my samba shares properly.

The samba server comes up when you go to media player/samba cifs, but when clicked on, an empty list appears and no shares are shown. Not given any opportunity to enter a username or password. Changing the authentication to none on the server end makes no difference. Share name is 'music' (no hyphens etc). Samba server is part of a WLX652 running SnakeOS if that is of any use.

Am I missing something? And have searched the forums and can't seem to find a resolution or docs.

Regards,
6J6A.

Hi, similar problem for me. After finally getting my wifi to work I now am trying to access my fileserver (Win2008 R2 on ESXi). After scanning for about 1 minute it finds it and I can enter my credentials. After that I get the list of shared folders but when chosing on it appears empty. Dunno what to do about that...upnp doesn't work either. I have a twonky Server running which I use with my AVR but the listenlive FW doesn't see it. Maybe there'll be a fix for this in the future Thanks Nana

I've now tried to connect to samba shares on a brand new D-LINK nas and I can see my shares but every share is empty. At no stage am I getting any prompt for credentials. I upgraded my other nas as mentioned in the original post with Samba 3 and no change.

I notice that in the latest firmware 1.44 you are supposed to be able to manually set share locations and credentials, hoping that might fix it. Seems like a discovery issue to me.

Will flash the new firmware and report back soon.

Cheers,
6J6A.

Got the same issues with Samba access as above two messages - empty shares content after providing credentials and choosing proper share.

In the same time on my home server UPnP HMS  (http://www.homemediaserver.ru/index.htm) is running which is accessed by my Xoro device (running listenlive v1.44) (though also with some troubles like impossibility to stop a stream in 80% of cases).

regards
Alex

Is this home server a windows machine? (windows 7?)
It seems there are some issues with accessing Windows PCs/Servers.

Yes, it is Windows Home Server 2011 (WHS 2011) which is basically nothing else but Windows Server 2008 R2 limited to 10 users
