Infuse is no longer able to connect to my Synology NAS. It had been working beautifully since Infuse macOS beta, but Infuse no longer refreshes the movie list from the NAS. I can’t quite say whether this happened after or before I moved to macOS Sonoma.
If I go to Infuse/Add file… and select the SMB share, the rotating wheel cranks for about 30 seconds before returning an error message: “Sorry, an error occurred while trying to connect.”
If I try to add a new share, using the NAS hostname.local, the same issue occurs.
If I use the NAS IP address instead, Infuse connects immediately.
I seem to be having the same issue on my AppleTV, where I connect to the same share on the NAS. On AppleTV, I am quite sure this issue started occurring before I moved to tvOS 17.
First symptom: the Infuse logo is displayed for about 30 seconds before the Infuse Home Screen appears (it did not use to do this in the past).
Second: the rotating wheels cranks for minutes, indicating that a refresh is in progress, but the movie list is never updated. When I go to Infuse/Settings, a message shows that “indexing failed”.
I’ve opened a ticket, so you could see the logs, n° is 157853.
I wondered about this also. But in my understanding, this is for sharing files/folders from macOS to other devices, including the AppleTV. But here I’m sharing the other way round : from the NAS to macOS/Infuse and tvOS/Infuse.
Besides, it that was the cause, then using the IP address wouldn’t work either.
Trying to get a handle on what this issue is. ATV is tvOS, the NAS runs its own OS. If you are directly pointing Infuse on the ATV to a NAS static address, then I don’t see where Sonoma macOS comes into play?
