I just received my Vero 4K and managed to set it up in my home network and it can connect to the Internet. I am using wired connections, no Wi-Fi.
My first step was updating the software, which worked fine. The System Info page shows it’s running Kodi 18.9
Following that, I tried to connect it to my Synology NAS following the steps in the Wiki page.
In the NAS, I enabled the file sharing as NFS as recommended, with the following settings:
Hostname or IP: my Vero 4K’s IP address in the network
Squash: No mapping (also tried other settings without results)
Security: sys Enable asynchronous: yes
Allow ports higher than 1024: no (also tried yes, with no results)
Allow users to access mounted subfolders: yes
In the Vero 4K I went to Videos > Add videos > Add files
On the page I tried two methods:
Browse - clicking on Browse opens another page where I chose Network File System (NFS)
It opened another page that showed my NAS’ IP address.
I clicked there but it does not see any of the folders.
I saved it anyway and it opened another windows asking how I wanted to scan for the files. I left the default options. After I click OK it simply did not seem to be doing anything.
I then tried to force by typing the patch as instructed in the Wiki page: nfs://SERVER/path
I typed the path in two different ways:
a) typing the server name/folder1/folder2
b) typing the IP address/folder1/folder2
It looked like nfs://server name/folder1/folder2
It then opens an error message saying that it “could not retrieve directory information”.
As a test, I connected a USB hard drive and added it using the “Auto-mounted drives” option and everything worked fine. So, it appears that the issue is in the Network settings. I have a couple questions:
any different settings to try in the Vero 4K? - I also tried turning SMB on in the Vero 4K, but did not make a difference
how to delete or edit the file paths in the Video list? - I see the options to Browse, Add and Remove. However, cannot click on the Remove option. My Video Files is looking like a mess because I added a few paths trying to get connected but all go nowhere.
Correct. That’s how it looks like when I finish setting it up.
It appears to recognize that location and after I accept it, it pops up a scan dialogue asking whether I want to use the movie database, is movie files are in their own folders, etc. I just change it to only use local info and click OK.
It says it may take some time, to index, but it’s just a blink (I have over 1000 files there, so it should take longer)
When it’s done I click on the “Movies NAS” location that I just created but it comes up empty.
I right click on it ans tel it to scan for new content. Still nothing.
I also copied one movie to the root folder to see it if it would find it there, but also does not see it.
