@Chuck_IV: I don't have a lot of experience with NFS (also tried http but that was even worse) as I only ever tried using it with my A-110 when I couldn't stream high bitrate files without stuttering on my network. This problem was solved by adding a switch and connecting the A-110 to a 10/100 port. I know it doesn't answer your question but I'm wondering if you've tried SMB with the latest A-210 FW? I only mention it because it's very easy to configure your shares using SMB.
There's a simple workaround for the database location. Just create a share where you have access in Windows (presumably with no media or maybe add a file to create the database) and then use NMJToolbox2 to add a second share (your NFS share). This way the media.db file can reside somewhere you can access it from Windows.
If you abandoned SMB just because of NMJ then I would definitely learn how to use NMJToolbox2 to manage your database. My A-400 couldn't even scan my library and I'd be lost right now without ROM's tool. It's incredibly easy to use as long as you get paths setup correctly.
First of all, you don't want two seperate media.db files if eventually you want both locations in the same jukebox. Create one file by scanning a location you can access from your PC. Keep in mind this doesn't have to be a location that you will ever want to store media in the future as it's a workaround for NMJ not allowing you to specify the location of the db explicitly. Once you have created the db file in an accessible location, you then add the path(s) of your media to this database from NMJToolbox2. At this point, you can now delete the original path. I suggested putting one media file in this original path location just to confirm your database was scanning correctly. You can then manually delete this entry from within NMJToolbox2. Once the paths are setup, you can scan for new media by type or scan for all new media with the appropriate button in NMJT2.
I just saw your thread on the NMT forum so check my response there as well.
