RE: Oppo locks up accessing NAS files...
I think I found a solution to the lock up issue, Beta Tester suggested to let the Oppo index the NAS first, after it's done indexing then you can access the files on the NAS. Indexing could take 5 minutes or a couple of hours depending on how many media files are on the NAS.
I have over 100K media files (music,vdieo, photo) on my NAS, I let the Oppo index for about an hour or so (probably not fully indexed because I stoped it after an hour on "Loading"), but I didn't experience any lockups after indexing. So, the lockups probabaly have nothing to do with a wireless or wired connection on the Oppo.
I should mention that the Oppo will index all media files regardless of how you have your data / media folders set up on your NAS, meaning, I've set up two main folders on the NAS, one "Data" and the other as "Media"...there are a few thousand media files in the Data subfolders (garbage files really) however, the Oppo indexed those files as well. I suppose the best way to configure, store and use a NAS for media being pushed to the Oppo (and/or AVR ) is to have a dedicated media only NAS. Another possible solution is to use a dedicated USB 2.0 external HDD or SSD plugged in to one of the USB ports on the Oppo, this would eliminate any potential network issues.
