successfully managed to install PiMusicBox on my Pi2.
Runs OK but cannot find a single file on my network. (Synology DS213j NAS, folder is called 'MUSIC'.)
I've tried a range of variations on the 'Network Drive' settings. (By the way, does this overwrite any changes I made to the settings.ini file on the SD card when I was preparing the SD card as per instructions here - http://www.pimusicbox.com/?)
Anyway, not sure what to do or what the actual address shoud be.
Mount Windows Network Drive on boot. Type the address exactly like this (samba mount): //servername/mountpoint/directory e.g. //192.168.1.5/musicmount or //server.local/shared/music
If the mount needs a username/password, also set it (leave empty for guest-access). Don't forget to let Mopidy/MusicBox scan the contents at first boot (see MusicBox Settings section)"
So far I have tried:
Should I be using the local address (192.168.0.60 or the 'preferred DNS server' as listed in my Synology settings) or the name of the server (DiskStation) as listed in Synology settings?
I don't know whther any of these have worked or whether some indexing was being attempted at any point.
Is there a message that says 'Please wait, indexing' to let you know that you've connected but just hang on a moment?
I don't even know how to check if MusicNox is even connecting to my NAS.
I can successfully play a stream from SomaFM, and I have copied an mp3 to the SD csard and can play it from there - so I must be at least doing something right!
Any guidance gratefully accepted from a frustrated noob!
Thansk in advance
