Well I'm quickly losing faith and running out of options so I'll try here...
I have the new(er) popcorn hour a-400. For whatever reason it will not stay connected to my 412+.
Example: if I leave my jukebox to visit the main menu/settings, upon attempting to return to my networked media I will get a "unable to access server" or "share no longer exists" message. Every time.
Now, "network drops" as they are called have been an ongoing issue with this device, but, in fairness, they seem to have been largely eliminated for the majority through apps,assigning static IPs, fware updates, and beleived it or not DOWN graded network switches. I have tried ALL of these...to no avail.
so then I ask: is there something obvious I'm missing here? My understanding is that the 412+ is set up by default for Samba sharing so there is little (if nothing) I should have to do in the first place. This is just driving me nuts: I can play movies back fine, all is well, and then a trip to the main menu renders the thing impotent. Just maddening for a novice like me.
Any help would be appreciated...I'm at work right now, but my last call to Synology ended with suggestion that I plug directly into the NAS and see what I get. Sound reasonable.
