[AppleTV2] Can't get ATV2 to work with NAS - cfriedberg - 2011-01-21 23:45
I have a Synology NAS, UPnP enabled, on my network. When i set up XBMCATV, i have to go through UPnP devices to get to it...unlike when i set up XBMC on my Mac, which recognizes the volumes and shows it as such when adding a source. The result is that it appears that the UPnP address is being included in the media scanning process and my library is...well bizarre. This doesn't happen on my Mac.

Does your NAS support SMB sharing? Most do. I think that protocol is the best one to use for XBMC. Simply add your NAS as a SMB source and see if that improves things.

It's a synology ds209. It has windows file server support but I see no SMB anywhere. I'm a Mac guy so be gentle.
Reset XBMC and now can't activate library mode.

Windows File support is generally for the most part SMB mode.
You won't be able to access library mode unless XMBC has content scanned and added to it's database. If you have not been successful in connecting to your NAS containing all your media, this would be the reason why you can not access library mode.

So how do I get it to scan? I added one folder of tv shows. Nothing is happening.

And why does this happen on the ATV but not the Mac?

Hey, I had the same issue with my AirPortExtreme, https://public.me.com/jeparkinson and click the PDF file. I found this to be really helpful.

Thanks for the PDF. But I have a NAS not an airport disk that contains my media.

Just checking the box "Enable Windows File Service" should do (I am running a DS210j).
Get the PDF johnsea uploaded (for you) ann follow the instructions how to set up your nas.
add network location
=> choose windows network (SMB)
=> enter server name (nas should have a manually configured ip - if not - do so under settings => network of your synology software)
=> follow instruction (pdf)....
