I received my first Vero 4K+ this week. I have been reading through a lot of threads on this board for a while. I used Kodi on a Sony TV with android TV installed. And I understand a lot of the basic functions.
I have the Vero 4K hooked up to my tv and attached a 4TB HD to a powered USB-hub attached to the Vero. All files play fine and I know how to access files from another source in my network (a 2010 MacBook Pro).
I am trying to figure out how to transfer files form my MacBook to the HD attached to the Vero. If I understand correctly this is not a big problem and my best bet is to use SMB/Samba. I already had the Mac Samba workaround in place by running the app SMBUp. I need to delve deeper in all the settings and to find the exact IP address my Vero is using.
But reading up on HD filesystems I see that ext4 is recommended. My current HD is formatted as Mac OS Extended (Journaled). If I am not mistaken this is the same as HFS+
Do I understand correctly that HFS+ is read only on the Vero? And that would mean I could not transfer files from my MacBook to the Vero even if I have a working SMB connection?
What would be the best practice be for my setup? I want the HD to be attached to the Vero so I can stream 4K movies with no problem and be able to edit the info on the HD attached (delete/add/edit files) by using my MacBook.
