The issue you are currently experiencing with OSMC
Slow access over SMB using
<IP> syntax and slower access using
The SMB Share iss hosted on a Synology NAS.
smb://<IP> syntax allows me to access the share very slowly but within a reasonable time frame (around 10 seconds to open a folder with 130 elements).
smb://<hostname>.local syntax takes over 60 seconds for the same operation.
This cannot be replicated on a MacBook, which is able to open the source in less than a second.
What you were doing when this issue occurred
Adding libraries to OSMC
Can replicate this issue on demand?
Accessing the Source even after it has been added is still suffering from the same performance issues, so every access replicates the issue.
The device you are currently running OSMC on: Vero 4K
What peripherals are attached to the device?
The official remote.
Has this issue been introduced by a new version of OSMC? When did the issue first appear and can you recall a time when it was not present?
This my first setup of the device and I can’t speak for previous versions.
Since I really don’t want to mount the shares on the Vero (they’re not mounted on the laptop either), what are my options to make this kind of access faster?
