I ended up doing just that. What I cannot get my head round is the fact that I went into the "V" drive through windows and shared the movies folder. It simply does not make sense to me that I also need to share the drive. Further, after sharing seemingly everything on earth earlier and finally gettting it to work, I swear I turned sharing "OFF" on the drive and it was still working.
Now, I'm assuming we're talking about turning sharing on in WINDOWS, not setting up a share IN the flex raid app (as I do not even know how to find it anyway).
Now- again- I'm getting the failure to update message in the jukebox when I attempt to dload new cover or fan art, even though everything is unchanged from where I got the jukebox to update from.
I know I'm beating on this thread, but this is driving me insane.
Yes I use flexraid. For some reason when ever the power goes out or blinks, I always have to turn the sharing back on for both the V drive and my movies folder. You have to be able to share the drive in which the folder you want to use is, or else it will not let you access the folder because the drive is not shared. Kind of like saying that you can sleep in one of the rooms in my house, but you can't get in because you do not have a key to my house. Probably a bad analogy, but you get the point.
Yes, I am talking about in windows, or home server.
As far as download cover art goes, I use NMJToolbox2. It is so much faster and easier. All of the album art and cover art are all in 1080p as well. All I do is load up my movies that I rip into their folder. Then I pull up the database and add the movies there. It adds everything for you automatically and then you have the option to change the art. There is a lot more choices in the NMJTB2. Once you try it, you will not regret it and wished that you would have done it sooner.
Doing all of this, I have never ever had an issue or a hiccup. Knock on wood! I also start in the jukebox screen and not the main screen. If it goes to the main screen, then I know that my power went out and need to share the drive and the folder again.
I hope I can help you out. good luck
