    Actually the Samba server on the NMT only shares \\192.168.0.6\share To access this within the NPVR (for the NMT) you need to use ShareHelper or run the recording server as username nmt password 1234.

    Yes, normally that is the case but you can add additional shares by amending /mnt/syb8634/etc/smb.sh as follows:

    start() {
    if [ -e /mnt/syb8634/bin/nmt_services.cgi ]; then
    echo Updating samba workgroup...
    smbworkgrp=`pflash get workgroup`
    /mnt/syb8634/bin/nmt_services.cgi cmd=smb_workgrp opt=${smbworkg
    fi
    passwd
    cat /share/smb >> /etc/samba/lib/smb.conf
    if [ -e /mnt/syb8634/bin/nmbd ]; then
    if [ -e /mnt/syb8634/bin/smbd ]; then
    echo -n "Starting samba"
    /mnt/syb8634/bin/nmbd -D
    /mnt/syb8634/bin/smbd -D
    fi
    fi
    }

    The /share/smb file is a text file that contains the samba share particulars for [dvd], with the same settings as for the default [share], except for the path. This does work as I don't seem to have any issues with seeing this share in Windows.

    In any case, even when I used \\192.168.0.6\share I'd have the same problem.

    Ok, I don't special case anything but \IP\share Everything else need the /mnt method The second part about permissions applies and works differently from running the PC version of NPVR

    The weird part is that the mvpmxc2 on the egreat has not problems with playing the iso files from the HDX1000. It's just the mvpmxc2 on the HDX1000 that has the problems with playing its locally stored iso files. Argh! The closest I have gotten is to telnet to the HX1000 and mount the share by:
    mkdir /mnt/\\\\HDX1000\\dvd
    mount -t cifs //192.168.0.6/dvd /mnt/\\\\HDX1000\\dvd -o username=nmt,password=1234,ro
    Then the iso will play, but it is too jerky to watch.

    It makes sense to me, you have the overhead of streaming it and playing it on the same box. Try making your symbolic link to the physical location and not a share.

    Yes, that is what I thought was happening.

    Sorry for my ignorance, but how and where would I do that?

    PS: Canada beat Tonga in the World Rugby here in NZ

    Instead of mkdir + mount try something like

    ln -s /dvd /mnt/\\\\HDX1000\\dvd

    Good news for Canada. NZ beat Tonga too know but that doesn't mean we can beat the All Blacks.

    Having grown up in Canada (near Sutton PQ) and now living in NZ I've got mixed loyalties when it comes to the Oct 2 match between NZ and Canada. Have to fly both flags.

    So I've gotten rid of the mount and done a symbolic link:

    ln -s /share/Video/DVD/ /mnt/\\\\HDX1000\\dvd

    The resulting ls command shows each of the DVD folders. Each folder contains one iso:
    ls /mnt/\\\\HDX1000\\dvd
    Battlestar Galactica
    Breach
    Buried


    This all looked good, but still no joy when clicking "play" on the folder through mvpmxc2 on the HDX1000. The HDX1000 gives me that green/blue/red rectangular image in the corner and stays there until I press "stop". Then it goes back to the previous mvpmxc2 screen.
