Hello, this is one again post about attached/network drives and NitoTV… apologies, but such a sore subject seems to concern a lot of us.
My set-up : AppleTV (brand new) with latest AppleTV 3.0.1 software / ATVFlash 4.0.3 + Time Capsule with attached WD MyBook (FAT32). AppleTV and Time Capsule are connected with ethernet cable.
The error message I get from nitoTV :
Network Mount Failed!
usage: mount_smbfs [-Nh] [-l host] [-M cmode[/smode]] [-O cuid [:cgid]/suid[:sgid]]
[-R retrycount] [-T timeout]
[-U user] [-W workgroup]
[-d mode] [-f mode] [-g gid] [-n long] [-u uid]
My Share point settings are :
Mount name : VIDEOS
Mount type : smb
Mount adress : Time-Capsule.local (I have also tried with the Time Capsule IP address - 192.168.1.20)
Requires Authentification : yes (I have also tried with No)
User login : ATV
Password : xxxxx
Volume path : VIDEOS
Auto mount : on
Use custom path : off
On Time Capsule, File Sharing is activated and protected with user passwords. I have also tried with Time Capsule password.
I can mount the hard drive both from my Macbook and a PC.
Can somebody give me some pointers ?
One suggestion for the ATVFlash support team : you guys should rewrite/update your wiki page about NAS streaming ! It’s very light, doesn’t cover a lot of issues, and too many people are having problems with this…
