Hi Olly,

I never really used the type NFS to mount any folders on a media device at home. Instead I always use SMB/CIFS as this is really easy. The help instructions are really misleading on this (just changed this for the current BETA and the next release), thanks for pointing this out!

You might try setting up a simple SMB-Share on your Diskstation (with a user login) and connect to this (probably fastest solution).

If you want to stick to the NFS Type and the mounting on Max2Play says everything worked fine, you may check if the Setup of your NFS-Share on the Diskstation is complete (try accessing the NFS share from another computer in your network).

@Claudio: Thanks for your input! I added the “*” option to the help instructions.
