Apple TV 4K - SMB timing out

Post by dubstastic » 10 Jul 2018, 23:18

HI Guys,

Apologies if this issue has been rectified. The last topic I saw on the was from 2017.

I have an Apple TV 4K and had the smb working fine, then I moved out my hard drives to another PC and now when I try to add the new smb address it says 'Operation Timed out'. Am I missing something?

Cheers!

The key words here are "to another PC", a windows PC I bet, possible one that has smb1 turned off. You don't say which lib you are using with the built-in SMB Client. There are three choices, libsmbclient (smb1 only), libdsm (smb1+ only) and libsmb2 which is smb2/3 capable.

Thanks for your reply. Yes, you are correct, it's a PC.

However, it was connected to another previous that I have since gotten rid of, but that had no issues finding that one. I have don nothing different except try to point MrMc to the new pc.

I didn't realise you needed anything else for it to work. is the client meant to be installed on the pc or is it an app or add on within Apple tv/MrMc?

If it was not an exact clone of the PC you got rid of, not a clue.

Generally, the defaults work fine for most. Those with OSX need to use libdsm, those with Window7/10 need libsmb2 as Microsoft has disabled smb1 in an update.

Nothing needs to be installed, setting -> services -> smb client. look there.

Great, thanks. Since you mentioned Windows, I do believe they were two different versions of windows. one is 8.1 and one is 10 (I'm pretty sure).

I'll have a look on my PC tonight and see if I can see the service settings. I have a tvpc and a htpc and the mobo shit itself, so I was hoping to replace the htpc with the apple tv and just movie my hard drives into the tvpc.

Thanks very much!
