Big problem after march update

I tried other files on NAS, same problem.
I tried now an .mkv file from a USB drive (Succession.2x03) and it can’t be played too.

What could it be?

Your log only shows attempts to play files from NFS shares.

No, I see these lines in the log:

From the USB pendrive

Did you have debugging disabled?

A full log may givve more clues

Never mind – I know how to fix this. I’ll need a few hours.

Thank you very much! :slight_smile:
Let me know, please

I tried playing the movie “Pasolini” from NAS with debugging enabled, if it can help you:

I know what the problem is now.

Hi Sam,

Perhaps this is the same issue…

My Vero2 plays content (MKV video files and FLAC music files) from an SMB share from a Synology NAS. All working fine until today.

Now (after the update) I can still browse around the SMB folders, but when I select a file to play (video or music), the Vero2 GUI shows an animated icon that reminds me of the Windows egg timer, then after maybe 20 seconds, it returns to the list of files without playing anything.

The Synology OS has not been patched since November - and it still serves content happily to other SMB clients e.g. using VLC. I tried rebooting the Synology and the Vero2, but that didn’t help!

Hopefully your fix for rodrisco will fix my problem as well?

Kind regards

  • Martin

I am having the same issue (I suspect it’s the same, at least.) I’ll keep an eye here for Sam’s fix.

I can fix it tomorrow, but I’m not feeling 100% right now.

Me three!

No biggy, we’ll survive, feel better Sam :slight_smile:

Thanks Sam! Get plenty of sleep. We can live without our media for a bit!

Hi I have the same issue too after upgrading to the latest March update, I have the 1st gen Vero:

I have the same error message too. Hope Sam gets well and gives us a fix!

The 1st generation Vero hasn’t been supported for some time. Are you sure you don’t have a Vero 2?

I uploaded some debug files in the other topic. One of the moderators found out from the log that I got a 1st gen Vero. I am sure I got a 1st gen.

How can I downgrade it to a previous version if my 1st gen is not supported anymore? Please help as I am now stuck at home without any movie… ;-(

I have responded to your other post

If you update again, things should now work as expected. Sorry about this!

Thank you very much for the quick support Sam!
Now it seems to work well :slightly_smiling_face::ok_hand:

All good on my Vero2 now! Many thanks for the fast turnaround Sam.
