    Sorry, perhaps I was not clear.

    Yes, Kodi runs and I can control it. But when I attempt to ass my NAS, the network name does not appear, and I cannot access via IP for some reason.

    I have added my NAS manually to the Max2Play SMB shares (ip/mnt=movies/connect-string) and they are accepted. But they don’t appear in Kodi, either.

    I’m having this problem also. No matter what I try, I can’t get the shared folder to mount. I try with IP, with network share name, I’ve tried various versions of the path, with CIFS with NFS, with the connect string (user=, pw= and so on…) and nothing seems to work.

    Internal on my NAS, the path is:

    On my network via a browser or any other streaming device, it is:

    M2P sees the server and will enter the information, but I keep getting a path error. Other streaming devices on my network (Volumio, moOde) see the server just fine. But for some reason, M2P just won’t connect.

    Can someone help?
    Ok, so here’s the problem.

    M2P was seeing my network name for the NAS, but required its IP. I have the files loading now.

    I bought the Pi3 and HiFiBerry DACpro with intent to task it exclusively as a ’smart‘ client running Media Monkey on the Pi and pulling FLAC from my NAS which is running Emby server for my modestly high-end audio only system.

    My plan was to install Media Monkey on the Pi, and leave the DB also on the NAS, so that there would be consistency of tags, play lists and whatnot. Unfortunately, I found out that’s not possible because MM does not run on Pi, it only runs on Windows or WINE, so I’m screwed. Musicbee would be a strong 2nd choice, but again – not on Pi – Windows only. Even if I could get some flavor of Windows (even Windows IOT) running on the Pi, the problem would then be driver support for the HiFiBerry DAC, so again… screwed.

    As a secondary plan, I tried to use M2P and gmediarenderer as a DLNA client, and control it MediaMonkey on my laptop and/or android phone, but multiple attempts at installation failed miserably; in other words, screwed. After banging my head against the wall with M2P, I finally just went with the HiFiBerry OpenELEC/Kodi image. It just works. But I would like to keep my options open and consider another player – or hopefully one day get MediaMonkey or MusicBee running on the Pi, but I’ve had no end of troubles with M2P. And yes, I am using version 2.32.

    If I could at least get M2P and gmediarenderer or preferably upmpdcli working on the Pi, then I could install MediaMonkey on my PC, move the DB to the NAS, and send the audio to the Pi using my laptop or phone as the control point. But again, I’m having no manner of luck at all.

    It’s terribly frustrating. Any help is appreciated.

    I’ll give that a look.

    Would there be any difference between the M2P Kodi install and the HiFiBerry install?

    So, if you’re abandoning OpenElec and Kodi for more flexibility, what are your plans? Curious to know.

    I’ll give that a try later this week. Most stores are closed today for our national holiday, and I have beer to drink. 🙂

    If you have any thoughts on how to get MediaMonkey working on Pi, I can tell you for sure that you’d have a lot of fans. There are many, many calls for that functionality. It’s reported to work on WINE, but I have no knowledge of this sort of stuff, so I’m at a loss.

    Thank you for your reply.

    I was able to work around it by using the HiFiBerry installer, and updating M2P via ethernet. However I found that the wifi connection isn’t very stable and dropped out a lot, which means I had a lot of trouble trying to connect to my Qnap NAS running Emby. I then tried to install gmediarenderer but that didn’t work either. Sorry to say, after about five or six attempts at flashing and reconfiguring, I went with OpenELEC and Kodi which finally got me up and running. A very impressive combination of DAC, FLAC and Tech when it finally works right. 😉

    I would like to make another try at M2P, though. Tomorrow I plan to buy another card, and will experiment further. My original goal was to use MediaMonkey because of its very robust tagging and playlist functions. Unfortunately it doesn’t run on Pi, so I got frustrated and decided to get at least something working for the time being.

    Looking forward to working further on this with your help. If there’s anything you’d like me to try, I’m at your service.
